"In every other kind of job, attractive women were preferred. This wasn't the case with men which shows that there is still a double standard when it comes to gender," said Professor Stefanie Johnson, author of the study and professor at the University of Colorado Denver.
Studies have shown that being traditionally "beautiful" may come with its advantages, like more positive performance evaluations and higher salaries. However, we obviously haven't come to a point where education, experience, and personality rise above. And almost everyone heard about the Citibank employee who complained of harassment for being "too pretty." Have you ever experienced any forms of discrimination regarding physical appearance in the workplace?
We're already not enamored of beauty pageants, but this news is just ridiculous. Fifteen-year-old Kiwi Olivia O'Neil has been stripped of her Miss Teen Wanganui crown. Her offense? She dyed her hair from blond to dark brown. When the pageant organizer, Barbara Osborne, saw it, she asked, "Is that a wig? I hope it is. Don't give me heart failure."
Our plucky pageant queen declared that it was indeed her real hair color, and that if Osborne didn't approve, then beauty pageantry might not be the right world for her. That's when things got crazy, with Osborne saying, "Well, you better decide, miss. Hand over your crown with an attitude like that. I'm sure someone will step into your place with manners." So Olivia did just that, at which point the organizer told the teenager that she "would not go far in this world." (What a nice lady!) Do you think Olivia should have been able to keep her crown, or is hair dye a serious offense?
When it comes to choosing a makeup palette, the general rule of thumb is to either focus on the eyes or the lips — not both. But some rules are meant to be broken. Pairing a smoky eye with a bold red lipstick can work, too. What's your favorite way to accentuate your mug: do you like to play up your lips, your eyes, both, or some other feature altogether?
