BEAUTY LIES IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER
There is a famous saying that beauty lies in the eyes of beholder. In many instances this statement proves to be true as various people have different tastes. In some instances where we see huge billboards, magazine covers and television advertisements covered with faces of beautiful models we do not agree with the statement ‘Beauty lies in the Eyes of Beholder’ as such instances there are so many people involved having similar tastes. Some men prefer dating chubby women with fair complexion while others prefer skinny women with attractive vital stats. Similarly, some women prefer hairy men and find them strong and attractive while some think of such men as virile and repulsive.
The concept of beauty has evolved from era to era. In the modern world men and women have different tastes for beauty while people living in early 60’s and 70’s had different tastes for beauty. In the earlier eras women had to be fat to be considered as beautiful as seen in many of the paintings of the Titian. The concept of beauty is again changing gradually with popular actors like Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Jennifer Lopez revealing that a beautiful woman is indeed with curves.
As a matter of fact, when we are younger and growing up we admire things that appear beautiful from the outside. We are tempted towards beautiful men and women without considering much about their real inner self. But as we grow and enter into adulthood we start admiring things that are beautiful from the inside. Outer beauty remains no longer the tempting aspect for us. In comparison, the outer beauty diminishes with growing age as wrinkles and blemishes start developing on the body whereas the inner soul remains genuine for the rest of the life no matter how we appear from the outside.
