  1. Fascinating. It’s also interesting how many models and actresses – already attractive by any standard – still get digitally enhanced for magazine covers and movie posters.

  2. I’ve seen this video before – it is very distressing to me. I personally find the woman more attractive in her first iteration and I’m grateful that my personal perception runs that way. I’m sad and irritated that for the majority of cultural Americans personal perceptions tend to prefer her final iteration. I think we each have to work with our own personal perception and try to bring preferences into alignment with our values. This is hard work, but may be the only path to true appreciation of ourselves and our daughters.

  3. I agree with Dorian. I think, at some point, we have to accept that real people look like real people.

  4. Beauty is indeed a work of art! Do these girls have real self-esteem?
