Default Could you be "beautiful"???

A few things have had me wondering this lately. Do you think that if you had lots of money and didn't have to work, and had a personal trainer and lots of stylists, etc., that you could be one of the "beautiful" people??? (I put "beautiful" in quotes because yes, everyone is beautiful in their own way, but I mean media/pop culture beautiful). How about other people you know?

Basically, I guess the question is, how much natural beauty do all these beautful starts have, and how much is just diet, exersize, and stylists. Have you ever seen stars' year book pictures? Some of them, who are now very beautiful, were just plain ugly!

Lol. Yeah, I'm pretty cute as it is.

Anyway, celebrity/fame is enough to boost just about anyone from "okay looking" status to "mind blowingly hot", even without stylists, trainers and cosmetic surgery. As for year book photos, all I have to say is that adolescence is a bad time for most people.

Hmmmmmm, I guess I'm wondering more:

How many of the "beautiful people" are actually beautiful, and how many of them are just regular ol' people with good stylists and trainers.

probably some, some (maybe 2%) are probably very natually beautiful.

and how much is just diet, exersize

lots.

and stylists.

LOTS. I doubt any can dress themselves and even if they do have stylists lots look like dogs dinners.

Someone once said that no wealthy person should be ugly. (I think it was one of the Gabor sisters...)

Generally, grooming and presentation make all the difference.

I was watching some special on E! and they said some celebs pay over $4,000 just to get their hair done everyday by stylists. That includes their dyejobs, extensions, etc. If they spend that much on just hair imagine what they spend on the rest of their body.

I also saw that this one hair product maker (some guy, I don't remember his name) makes a certain product ONLY for Justin Timberlake. No one else can have it! They said JT spends over $20,000 per tour on just his hair...he doesn't even have much to work with either.

With unlimited resources, I think the majority of people could be made attractive. Course I look fine now!

But all the money and work in the world won't turn me into Halle (ok, plastic surgery might) but that's okay.

I look good with no make-up AND my natural hair!!!! How many of the hollywood types, especially the ones who smoke, can say that?

Of course I could. Check out ugly Tori Spelling. She is ghastly, but Hollywood obviously thinks she is hot.*edited to add, even without all the above, I could be a beauty any day. Hell, I AM a beauty.

No they don't, they think she is the daughter of what was a very powerful and rich hollywood executive. What is she famous for? Being in her dad's tv show.

What has she done lately?

some indie films with miniscule rolls.....

Sure, money can get a person to look like hollywood's standard of beauty, but
a) so what
b) is that really something to strive for?

inner peace and well being doesnt have a price. Well, it does cost money to eat and stuff, but you know what I mean.

Lol, same here. I think I look pretty good and could definitely be better looking than most of those celebrities if I had all that money. Only a few of them, men and women, are striking to me and I think I've seen more beautiful people personally(friends, friends of friends) that look better anyways.

Yeah. Celebs aren't necessarily better-looking than regular folks. They're just people.
