The Rich, Beautiful, and Famous!

Marilyn-Monroe-

I’ve been reflecting, not spending 7 days in meditation like the infamous philosopher Rene Descretez’s, II Meditations, concerning the nature of the human mind, but out of curiosity “Why woman aspire to become Fashion Models”? Is it the “words” that are associated with it? Bewitching Beauty, “Fashion put it all on me” and “Click,click, Flash” fellow fashionista Ciara bedazzles us with. Celebrities and parties are endlessly rejoicing in Great Gatsby’s Revolution, the kind of Glamourous Life that Fergie advices us to aspire to. However way it’s seen, hey I’m convinced I’d want to be apart of the rich,beautiful,and famous.

But what happened to the beauty that William Shakespeare seen in his mistress? He is after all a man of great eloquence and eye for beauty.
He said, “
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound.
I grant I never saw a goddess go:
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

To him his mistress’ beauty is rare, raw, and the realism of her sensuality fueled their romance.

The feeling of a lover,honestly, glorifying in your unique qualities does leave a permanent mark of admiration that reciprocates between the two of you. However, those words aren’t meant for you to exploit and genuinely believe that you have an advantage over others.

Magazine covers mesmerizes us with faces considered Ideal, according to the Encyclopedia of Modern Beauty, when really modeling is about height, and proportions; so where does iconic beauty fit in to the equation? The glamourous Kim Kardashian hasn’t been featured in Vogue Magazine, is it because she is not beautiful? Obviously, the politics of the industry plays a major role in how these “beautiful faces” will be in demand.

Still…What really justifies beauty from a modeling agency’s prospective? No one can convince me that he has no physical flaws. I’m a self declared analyst and observer of mankind’s physical structures,and there is no specie known to nature that holds no imperfections, or created without an opposite. Even fruits have this insecurity; If your the sweetest peach in the world, there will be someone who hates sweet peaches.

Love yourself as you are because that is the ultimate beauty designed by the great architect himself-God.

  1. Like yourself, I’m an observer of human nature, and I believe women, and men, want to become top models not because of the money, or because of fame, but because of their vanity and insecurity. They want to make a point. They’re thinking ‘Look at me. Am I not beautiful?’ I’ve seen beautiful women that are not vain and their self-esteem is balanced. And I can say this because I dated a woman who is more beautiful that many ‘top models’ out there, yet she is happy with who she is and what she does. She doesn’t need people telling her ‘You’re so pretty!’ In your own words, she ‘Loves herself as she is because that is the ultimate beauty designed by the great architect himself-God.’

    • Thank you Francoalan for sharing, I agree that there are beautiful women who don’t aspire for fame, money or any kind of self enhancements. However, we’d be speaking of a select few who don’t aspire for fame and prestige. Kim Kardashian for instance, is a beautiful woman whom I believe understands the power of her own sensuality, and it’s the driving force behind her luxurious lifestyle. In other words, when half of the population considers anyone a sex symbol, then they might hold the desire to exploit such “a beautiful image” to sustain a living-money- and become well known.

      • To be honest with you, and respecting your opinion, I don’t think Kim Kardashian is that attractive. To me, for a woman to be attractive, she has to have class, and… well, you know her story. And more than she being sensual, she’s famous for all the gossip around her life. Trust me, if her life wasn’t full of all that drama -and trauma-, she wouldn’t get all that attention. But, as I said, I respect your opinion, and thank you for letting me share.

  2. Francolan, I love the depth you add on to “The Rich, Beautiful and Famous” certainly many will agree,myself included, that being beautiful must transcend physical attractiveness (which I know you don’t see in her) and emanate from within the spirit. Kim, has influenced many women for their choice of fashion, and fashion does transform one’s image, but only on a physical standpoint. There’s deep psychological imprints which only Kim ,or anyone for that matter, understands in relation to beauty…as for us the public…we’ll never really know if she sees her own sensuality as commensurate to women of class and honor.

    Again, thanks for sharing!
