Defining Beauty -- Featuring Carrie's Lingerie, FINESMITH, [GoS] and KMADD

I was talking recently with a friend regarding the adjective BEAUTIFUL. The old addage, 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder' makes a lot of sense, and beauty comes in many outward visuals but also comes in many inward traits. I work with fashion and I firmly believe every person who makes a fashion choice has something in mind, their own personal definition of what's beautiful and what will enhance it, in every common and every uncommon possibility.
Beauty and being beautiful only work, in my opinion, if the person first manifests beautiful personality traits. Once I've acknowledged their value, I can look at the fine tuning of nature (or pixels) and find beautiful attributes in an person's outward appearance. I also think beauty might be the thing many strive for, but the emphasis in our current society skips the internal beauty and markets the external.
What do you find beautiful? Who? Are there people you've come across in Second Life that have done wild and crazy things with the sliders to create an avi from a planet you've never heard of, and made you go hmmm? What about people in your world off line who put that crazy purple plaid jacket over a pair of leggings that were NOT designed to be pants, and then wore this outfit to your place of business, and made you go hmmm? Are there common traits we all agree exemplify beauty? And those that do not qualify? I think so.
This morning, I listened to the excitement and looked at some photos of a friend who's goal for the day was to turn in a contest card. Many contests began using photos as a first round means of choosing the most - stylish - beautiful - able to represent the brand - and those photos are important. The photos were just lovely and I smiled and wished her good fortune. How do the judges know what is or isn't beautiful? It's something I've been pondering for a while now, and from different angles. I love the beauty in each of you, and it shines.

Thank you for your support designers. Without each of you, this would not be possible:
