ANDREA :
The canons of beauty are always changing. What 70 years ago was "the perfect body", nowadays, it isn’t and without going further, what last year was the "ideal body" this year it isn’t. A model of the last century would starve this century; the canons of beauty are completely different!! But why this happens? It's pretty clear that we are very obsessed with our physical appearance and this leads us to live always looking the models that we should follow. When appears a model who is a little different from the others, people start to follow and imitate her, and for this, our idea of beauty is always changing, and in that way, we would never be happy with our self and this is very sad..
Even so, I think that all of us should be more independent, I mean, it's normal that the ideal of beauty of the moment influence us but we have to think that what is the top today, would be "the worst" tomorrow, so don't change yourself.
