I found this in the December 2006 issue of O Magazine while attempting to clean out my magazine files. Its called THE PLAIN TRUTH ABOUT THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE by Simon Doonan.
"Any new definition of beauty should obviously include stuff like courage and accomplishment and selflessness, but let's not forget humor. Let's celebrate those individuals who have retained the ability to be childlike and silly."
"Any definition of the REALLY beautiful people needs to encompass people like my courageous blind aunt, Phyllis, who always rose cheerfully above her handicap, with (or in spite of)Lassie, her Seeing Eye dog. I'll never forget the time Aunt Phyllis returned from a friend's funeral with her knees grazed and grass in her hair."
"What the hell happened?" asked my mum, dabbing disinfectant on Phyllis's wounds.
"Lassie led me into the open grave," Aunt Phyllis replied, and then collapsed on the floor laughing. Now that is what I call BEAUTIFUL.
This got me laughing and thinking about my beautiful people.
Check out Dove's campaign for real beauty and see some true beauties.
These beautiful women are everywhere, but sadly, a lot of them don't realize just how beautiful they are. Enough is enough already!! Join the cause with me and vow to never again let the world tell you what REAL BEAUTY is!!
