WEll of course I am not in the media, nor am I a "handler" of anyone famous, and of course I am biased in favor of curls. But, Nicole Kidman had drop dead gorgeous curls - now she looks ordinary. Less attractive, in my opinion. Same as Juliana Marguiles, and Taylor Swift, for that matter. I have had people stop me on the street and ask if my curls are natural. I doubt anyone asks that of our straight haired friends.
I also think that curls are youthful; softer, more flattering to a woman's face as she gets older. Just sayin'.
