What IS the Price of Beauty?

20 Apr

Have any of you seen the show “Price of Beauty” with Jessica Simpson?

I must say that I really enjoy it.

I always love learning about the everyday social norms of other cultures, and it is really interesting to see what other cultures traditionally consider beautiful. I’m always open-minded and try not to judge, and I am fully aware that I shouldn’t base my concepts of what is beautiful on a magazine cover.

However, being a young woman in the United States, it is very difficult not to do so.

It is refreshing to journey to other countries with Jessica Simpson and company, and to see other cultures’ perceptions of what is beautiful vs. what is not – both inside and out, and to explore both current and historical beauty regimens.

In one country in Africa, the bigger you are, the more beautiful you are. “Fat” is not a derogatory word. “Skinny” women are frowned upon. In Japan, the eyes that many consider beautiful and exotic are a burden for some of the women there, who have cosmetic surgery to have their eyes made to appear more rounded and bigger, like a “doll.” Also in Japan, there are two very different cultures of women: the Harajuku girls who are very modern and whimsical in their clothing choices, and then also the very ultra-traditional Geisha, and everything in-between. In a Middle-Eastern country, Jessica gets scolded for showing too much leg, as the woman doing the scolding was showing quite a bit of cleavage. But who are we to judge? To each his (or her) own.

One common theme throughout the show is not about the rituals (some of which are crazy – fish that eat fungi off of your feet, laying buried in sand for 2 hours, mud baths, grape jacuzzis, and more) – but a theme of finding inner peace, loving yourself, and thus, radiating beautiful from the inside out.

The concept of this show could become cliche and contrived. However, as corny as it gets at times, Jessica and her friends give it the perfect dose of comedy and humor mixed with an honest vulnerability and a true desire to learn what, exactly, true beauty really is.

I love it, and I think that Jessica has become stronger because of it. Let’s face it – the girl has been a target of tabloids and “fans” alike. I think she’s great and I applaud her! (read my recent blog about Jessica’s recent “no-makeup” Marie Claire shoot, here.)

Celebs Get Real: Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson Release Untouched Photos! And Me, Makeup-Free!

15 Apr

This week, Britney Spears authorized the released of her untouched Candies ads – cellulite and all!

Recently, Jessica Simpson posed makeup-free on a magazine cover.

I like this celebrity trend!

While they’re still better looking than the average gal, it IS nice to see that even celebrities have their flaws. I’m not at all “for” the tabloids that exploit stars with their “who has cottage cheese thighs” and “guess who’s flab this is?” worst-of beach bodies issues – BUT – if stars like Britney and Jessica want to authorize the public to see the “real” them on their own terms, well, more power to ’em!

Below are the pics – today’s Photos of the Day!

Spears said she did this to show women and young girls that she is not perfect!

Here are Simpson’s May photos from Marie Claire – Jessica Simpson and her camp swear that they are without makeup. Here is a photo of Jess with makeup (left) and then the May 2010 Marie Claire cover without:


Here’s a shot of Ms. Simpson from the inside of the mag:


Jessica posed au naturel, saying that she has nothing to prove. Her new show, The Price of Beauty, is about finding beauty from within, and explores the entire world searching for what each individual culture defines as beautiful. Perhaps, as her song, “In This Skin” alludes to, and despite all the paprazzi badergering her about her weight, Jess really is comfortable in her own skin? I hope so.

By the way – I believe her claims that she is makeup-free. What about you? Here’s a good blog dicussing the topic:

And how about Britney? Despite her bruises and cellulite, I’d take her bod any day.

Thoughts?

I’m interested to hear a GUY’S perspective on this one! Is Jess pretty? Fat? Britney? Yes, no?


Regardless, as woman, I applaud them for going makeup-free. Here’s makeup-free me, taken just now at 6:52pm EST! No makeup, no editing, hair au naturel, too! Ladies ~ anyone else brave enough to share NO MAKEUP pics?!? Scary…..but somehow, freeing! 🙂    Get empowered, we don’t need makeup or re-touching, right gals?? 😉

(Please note: I’m OK with posting a no-makeup face pic. Do not ask me to post a bikini pic right now. I am soooo NOT THAT confident hehehe)

So here, check out the LINK to the slideshow for now. If it doesn’t work – PLEASE let me know!
