When reading The Truth About Beauty, Virginia Postrel describes how some people were blessed with good looks and others who are not as fortunate. In most advertisements you see women that are drop dead gorgeous. What people don’t know is that underneath all that caked on make-up, is just another woman. So how can hiding what you really look like be beautiful? I believe that being beautiful starts within. Women who are confident with themselves and aren’t afraid to show who they really are, is what I believe to be beautiful. But with many advertisements, it makes it hard for some females to be confident while seeing what is portrayed as beautiful. Even though it’s not your typical commercial, Dove’s commercial containing women of all sizes, helps people see that there is no such thing as perfection and that not all women are stick thin. In the beginning of the commercial they say, “ Every girl deserves to feel beautiful just the way she is,” which is true, everyone has feeling and just because one girl isn’t as beautiful on the outside as the rest, should not be treated like leper. There is nothing wrong with a girl eating a BIG, FAT, JUICY BURGER.
