Erasing the Old Beauty Standards

Allure magazine interviewed 2,000 women and men about their thoughts on beauty, and the survey results show a profound shift in how Americans perceive race and beauty. Here are the results:
  • 64% think women of mixed race represent the epitome of beauty. Yay!
  • 70% of those who wish to change their skin color wanted it to be darker— this was pronounced among women.
  • 74% of those surveyed believe that a curvier body type is more appealing now than it has been over the past ten years.
  • 69% of survey respondents believe there is no such thing as an “all-American look.”
  • 85% of those surveyed believe that increased diversity in this country has changed what people consider beautiful.
Do you love this as much as I do?
