Beauty

Check out this video from Dove:
It shows the transformation of a "normal" model into a billboard.

I love the line, "Not even supermodels look like supermodels." The part where they show the digital transformation of a photo was so interesting. I knew that photoshop was amazing, but it's interesting to see how the dramatic adjustments of the face create the ultimate beautiful face.

I've appreciated Kathy's definition of beauty in the chapter on sexuality in the book. She describes physical, spiritual, and emotional aspects of beauty (ie. compassion) that is so helpful.

"How beautiful are the feet of them that brings good news."

Wow. That's an amazing video. It reminds me of a line in Michelle Graham's book Wanting to Be Her. An actress was looking at a photo in a magazine and wished she looked like the model before she realized it was a picture of herself.
