View Full Version : Do you agree with high fashion's definition of beauty?

For women it's strongly Baltid, Alpinid, Borreby and other strongly CM influenced women (high, prominent cheekbones, chiseled jaw etc)
For men it's strongly CM influenced phenotypes (Faelid, Borreby, Paleo-Atlantid types usually), chiseled jaw, very masculine-looking.
Why do you think these types are sought, and do you find them attractive?

Woman = Alpinid influenced Halstatt + Keltic
Man = Anglo Saxon + Faelid

I prefer softer features. They seem more feminine and inviting. High Fashion's definition of beauty doesn't match that of many straight males. It's an open secret.

Not especially. I think beauty has universal characteristics...such as symmetry and a look of vitality. Other than that, I think beauty shouldn't follow any one defined characteristic. Beauty can be found in many forms:) We all have our own preferences.

The models are often too thin, because they are there to show off the clothes, and they often have bland faces so that they can show off the make-up and the hair.
So, they may be natural beauties, but it's a different standard, a fashion standard, which seems to change a lot, going in and out of androgyny, for example.
It's not normal standard of beauty, and it's meant to be unobtainable, so that we feel compelled to buy more and more of the products that they advertise.
I think Lily Cole (the second woman you posted) is gorgeous. She reminds me of a doll or renaissance painting.

I don't find them attractive. The model look now is tall women with sterile androgynous featureless bodies with almost pathologically paedomorphic baby faces. It's grotesque to me.
Lily Cole looks like a cabbage patch doll on stilts. It's gross.

Nope. Models are meant to photograph well and show off whatever it is they're selling. I rarely find any kind of female model attractive and I think a lot of male models look like dorks but they have the right look for the job. That's it.

Not when it turns into an aesthetic monopoly and same looking people wander around.I am a more National Geographic-Unisef card type, when it comes to beauty ..Human or eagle or tree I like looking at nice pictures and enjoy beauty in things.

Yeah I agree with most of it, I like the fact that they look for unusual beauties. Subraces with high cheekbones and unique features.

Beauty is matter of personal aura and taste. It's not connected with subracial type.
I don't like the posted women. Man are so so, but again not enough masculine.

I think female high fashion models are a bit too androgynous. Too tall and flat-chested.
