i dont get the idea of your post,i dont think shape size or color makes you fashionable,for my experience here almost everyone are ultimately loving fashion as a way of expression( as the word art maybe too much).there is a big amount of monotonous fellowing too

@Patlaenz…what i mean is…to look beautiful and stylish…does one have to fit into being in a certain category of body type and skin colour or u really have to be unique in expressing yourself??

All I know is that if your nice, it makes you even prettier, if your mean, it makes you uglier.

It’s culture and time dependent, there’s no ‘monotony’. There may be overarching normative trends for each culture, but that completely overlooks individual preferences—and as the saying goes, ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ :)

Agreed with new american ^ Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and there is something beautiful and unique about each of us that makes us who we are. Taking care of yourself doesn’t hurt either :)

A small part of human beauty is objective, and has to do with biology: there have been studies that show that humans prefer other humans who show traits associated with good health and fertility, like symmetrical features, an hourglass figure for women, a thick head of hair, even skin tone, etc. However, that’s still a very wide range of beauty!

Culture also has something to do with it, with certain groups of people preferring different physical features, like curvier vs. skinner, dark vs. light hair, dark vs. light skin, etc or elements of fashion like more or less conservative, more or less feminine, etc. But even within a certain culture there will be individuals who do not share the dominant preference.

And as if that weren’t complicated enough, humans also find novelty and uniqueness attractive. If you look at some of the most famously beautiful people in history, they often have a distinguishing trait like a mole, an exaggerated feature (large eyes, large nose, large lips, etc) or some asymmetry, or who dress in a unique or iconic way. A person who is different in his/her appearance or style but confident in that will attract attention, and that is attractive to many people.

Overall I agree withnewamericanclassic: There are overarching patterns to what different cultures and people in general find beautiful, but as long as you are healthy and confident in yourself and your look you can guarantee there will always be people who find you beautiful.
