Qu'ils mangent de la brioche

What is beauty? (Who knows me, knows I love definitions)According to Wikipedia, beauty is the characteristic of a person,animal,place, object, or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure, meaning, or satisfaction. An "ideal beauty" is an entity which is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture, for perfection. The experience of "beauty" often involves interpretation and people's own sensibility.

Crucial in defining beauty is the role of fashion. Fashion and trends have changed through the decades people's parameters of beauty, moulding the face of our society. Each segment of our past coincides with a signature feature that was considered part of being beautiful (and being beautiful was like being part of the aristocracy). Fashion is for the masses now, and it needs to redifine (again) its rules, giving a broader definition of BEAUTY:which is now closer to charme, uniqueness and edginess than to objective perfection.

A perfect example of this phenomenon is this Bronx, New York born teen. SHAUN ROSS. He’s an albino, which means he is affected by a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes due to absence or defect of an enzyme involved in the production of melanin. Shaun is also African American, this means he has full lips, wide nose and kinky hair, and does this makes him weird? YES. And does this makes him look beautiful? YES.
