Ilona and I are back with another collaboration post for you to enjoy.
Although outward beauty has always been considered important, I think our present society concentrates on it way too much. Everywhere you look there are ads for beauty products, articles on beauty tips, models are always beautiful in every way, but it’s all dealing with outward beauty.
Everyone would like to look young, beautiful, handsome, but really, what is most important? Outward beauty or inner beauty?
No one will deny the fact that the cult of appearance is very important in modern society. Television, newspapers, magazines are all shimmering with news about who, how much and how much plastic surgery has been done, who and how much money has been spent on a new designer suit or dress.
And that would be nothing like that, but without us noticing, beauty and appearance stereotypes are implicitly formed, so here’s why when we see a girl, we can tell if she could be in a movie or obedient mommy or a true hip-hop fan and it is up to each of our personal imaginations to determine which stereotype will be most attractive and acceptable.
Ilona and Steve.
