Our appearance doesn’t always meet generally accepted standards of beauty. At the same time, every woman has a choice: try to make her appearance fit the stereotypes, or love herself and conquer everyone with her charm and charisma. What makes a woman truly beautiful in your opinion?
Check out this list to change your attitude to perfection.
’My appearance is not the card up my sleeve.’ However, the actress is certainly a true example of elegance, otherwise The Devil Wears Prada wouldn’t have been such a crazy success.

’Everyone is beautiful,’ says Barbra. ’We only need to believe in it sincerely, and then others will believe.’ The classmates who teased Barbra for having slightly squinting eyes and a huge nose would probably never have thought that she would become a global sex symbol. ’Being perfect is boring. That’s why you should cherish your defects — they make you special.’

She has been criticized throughout her life for being too curvy. But she said that ’It’s better to look a little curvy in pictures and look like human, than to look chic on the screen but resemble a skeleton in real life.’ I agree.
