In the beauty industry an olive shade of powder is known as Rachel. The shade was named after a French tragic actress who was famous for her natural facial color. Sadly, her unique skin tone resulted from tuberculosis, which killed her in 1858 at the age of thirty-seven.
Well, it sounds like the color itself was pretty.. probably one of the few appealing things about tuberculosis. I imagine though if it were not appealing, people that would want to look like they had it would be those playing characters with it in film, tv, or theatre..
Besides, don't you get super thin with tb?
Isn't that what the world's all about these days? I mean look at the Academy Awards.
I must be thinking of Olive Green.
Back in 1856 thin wasn't really considered beautiful
Oh, definitely. But it is now. I guess there's kind of that olive brown color that especially if she was a European actress probably wasn't too prevalent.
*laughs* My whole damn family is that dark 'olive' color, I don't really consider it that attractive
But that's because your whole family is that color. If you were ghost white like I am, you'd probably think it was beautiful. It's all about familiarity and exoticness.
I'm pasty as a white-frosted pastry, and I'm attracted to women who are the same.
Well, then I suppose it's more to do with the individual person.
And hey, want my number?
I suppose so, I like white girls, heh.
White skin is fragile looking, and very, very beautiful in my opinion. Much better than that orangish color you get from tanning booths. I am proud of my porcelain skin.
I hate that... I hate feeling imperfect, and like I have to be thin. I hate feeling ugly. >.<
Pencil stick figures really are NOT that atractive...
It's sad that people who aren't pencil thin have to feel bad about themselves. Some people are normally pencil thin, and others normally a lot larger, and unfortunately the media doesn't accept this. So many kids, and adults have eating disorders all over because of this. It's very, very sad.
One of these days I'm going to have someone sky-write, "SKINNY DOES NOT EQUAL BEAUTIFUL!" in huge letters all across the horizon. It grieves me that some people refuse to believe that appearance isn't everything. And I know alot of women who would actually look more attractive if they went out and ate a sandwich or something.
Seriously. Soooo many women. And men too. Oh well. Welcome to America, or at the least Americamindset.
Nah... that's pretty universal.
