I am sitting on the couch on a Sunday afternoon (when I really should be working) watching the Miss USA competition. I must admit I love looking at gorgeous women, and judging them of course! Mmm a little evil you might think, but in reality that is exactly what this competition is about. These women are preening and training so that they can be judged over and over again.
Now sometimes looking at these gorgeous specimens can make us normal women feel horrible about ourselves, and our looks. But in reality these women employ a team of people to help them look like this, so it is unrealistic for us to compare ourselves with them. I actually love watching programmes like this it makes you realise that there are so many gorgeous women in the world, even though some of them have been preened beyond recognition.
I know your probably thinking that looks aren’t the be all and end all and I completely agree with you. Exterior beauty is only an element of what makes a woman gorgeous, inner beauty definitely shows through in a woman’s actions and her smile, in the end it’s definitely the things I have done and the decisions that I have made in my life that have made me who I am, and made me feel successful. So I suppose that is why I love watching programmes like this, trying to catch the inner beauty of these girls and trying to figure out if there is more underneath that exterior shell.
A lot of people I know suggest that competitions like this are a load of bolder dash. To a certain extent I think that they do have a negative effect on young women, all women. But on the other hand it is possible to take away positive things from a competition like this. We can feel assured that although these women are amazingly gorgeous, this doesn’t have to make us ladies feel bad about our looks. It can make us feel better about ourselves, that we are all gorgeous in our own way. That we manage to look, feel and do great things everyday whilst holding down jobs, studying, running business’, looking after our families and our partners, and being great friends to the other fabulous women around us. See we are all fabulous and gorgeous.
