Hi everyone,

There is an old saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder' but is that true? Also the quote from the famous poem by John Keats (1795-1821) called "Ode on a Grecian Urn" where he is contemplating the graceful Grecian women on the urn -Beauty is truth, truth beauty," – that is all, Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'
But is this true either? How do we know what really is beautiful? That is what I intend to find out.

For my university degree I am writing my dissertation on What is beauty?' and as beauty is a very personal interpretation of what surrounds us I thought the best thing to do would be to compile a questionnaire.
So I would be very grateful if you could take 10 minutes or so just to tell me your views, and I hope you fine it interesting to fill out and read other people's answers.

If anybody has any questions please feel free to PM me.

PS, Mods I do hope that I'm ok to put this up here with the Snitch being so busy at the moment, but it would be so useful for my work, !!! and I'm really keen to find out what everybody thinks.

8. Do you find the latest fashions beautiful? Some of them. Like peasant tops. Their nice.
9. Who is your favourite fashion designer? Old Navy
10. Who do you think dictates what is beautiful? And why? I think it's the Celebrities. So many people try dress/look like them! It's a little annoying....
11. How much of an influence do you think the media has on beauty? Quite a lot if by the media you mean Teen/Gossip/Celebrity magazines.
12. Do you think beauty is linked with confidence? Most definatley
13. Do you think stereotyping affects what is classed as beautiful? Definatley.
14. What do you think detracts from someone's beauty? doing drugs, following trends and not having your on style, bad personality.
15. What do you think is a symbol of beauty in this day and age? I think it should be someone's personality, but unfortulatley it's money, fame, clothes, and appearence.

18. What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the most beautiful? And why? Probably eyeshadow, because I think I have pretty eyes and it brings more attention to them.
19. What item of clothing or accessory gives you the most confidence? And why? Shoes. If I ever get a nice pair of shoes (and that's almost never), they make me feel like I have better style, and because at my school, your shoes practically make your outfit.
20. How important is hair and make-up to you? Not that important. As long as my hair isn't tangled and people can look at me, I'm good. :lol:
21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for? Hmm...my friend, Bethany/ Bethany's mum. Her mum wants her to have *coughcough* popular friends, and I'm not quite that. And lately Bethany's been hanging out with the people who have cooler clothes and stuff and....I just want her to notice me again, too.

Sometimes.

Too much.

20. How important is hair and make-up to you?
Hair is importent, although I dont do much with it. But makeup, eyeliner is essential. And thats it.

21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for?
For myself. Many times Im not going out anywhere special, but If i feel i look crappy, Ill fix my hair or whatever, just to stand myself.

22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women?
Other woman for sure.

Somewhat.

3. Are you single or in a relationship? Single
4. Occupation? None

Main section
5. What do you think beauty is? What pleases the eye. Some people say it's personality or love, etc. That may sound nice, but they're changing the definition. Beauty means prettiness. People seem to have a problem saying that. It is true that arrogance, meanness, etc. can make someone less likeable, but they can still be beautiful.

8. Do you find the latest fashions beautiful? Yes.

10. Who do you think dictates what is beautiful? And why? Hollywood, because people imitate them.
11. How much of an influence do you think the media has on beauty? An immense influence; the media virtually defines it.
12. Do you think beauty is linked with confidence? Yes, but it doesn't have to be.
13. Do you think stereotyping affects what is classed as beautiful? No.
14. What do you think detracts from someone's beauty? Slovenliness and immodesty.
15. What do you think is a symbol of beauty in this day and age? Celebrities.


16. Do you have any idols that influence your appearance? What is it about them that you find inspiring? No.

18. What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the most beautiful? And why? Skirts, because they look the prettiest!

20. How important is hair and make-up to you? Make-up is very important, because it can really make a difference. Hair, not really; if you have a pretty face then hair simply adds to it, and if you don't then no matter how nice your hair looks it won't much help your appearance.
21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for? Anyone who sees me.
22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women? Other women.
28. Do you think beauty is just in the mind of the beholder? No, it is usually undeniable that some people look pretty and others don't.
29. Do think truth is beauty? No, that makes no sense. The two have nothing to do with each other.
30. Do you think your opinion of beauty changed whilst answering this questionnaire? Nope.

Either pants that make my butt look small, seeing as I'm very troubles with my hips or a nice top that brings the attention upwards and not to the hip area

Depends on the situtation. When I'm home, I don't care that much about it. I always make sure that I'm clean of course, but I don't put extra effort into looking better. When I'm going out of the house to shop with a friend or go meet people, I do make sure that my hair looks nice and I put on some masacra and lipgloss.21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for?
Myself and that special someone....one day
22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women?

9. Who is your favourite fashion designer? I don't know any by name.

10. Who do you think dictates what is beautiful? And why? I think that the rich and famous determine what is beautiful.

11. How much of an influence do you think the media has on beauty? I think the media has defined secular beauty. I think that God originally defined beauty-all he made was beautiful. Man/Media corrupted this.

12. Do you think beauty is linked with confidence? I think that beauty can be linked to confidence in a very direct way. Many people who are not defined as beautiful by the media have very low self-esteem. Those who are beautiful either are egotistical or are so worried that they will loose their beauty that they become non-selfconfident and have low self-esteems.

13. Do you think stereotyping affects what is classed as beautiful? Yep. One word: blondes.

14. What do you think detracts from someone's beauty? I think a horrible personality or inflated ego or being a floozy detracts from beauty.

15. What do you think is a symbol of beauty in this day and age? I think that a skinny waist or a big bosum or money or abs/muscle definistion defines beauty.

Section just for women (If you are male please skip this section)

16. Do you have any idols that influence your appearance? What is it about them that you find inspiring? Probably my sister-she's skinny, but also has a wonderful personality. Professional ballet dancers also inspire me. They are so gorgeous and thin and perfect.

17. What is your ideal body shape? Skinny...but not too skinny, like Kate Moss.

18. What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the most beautiful? And why? layers-they protect everyone else from seeing my hideous self. The only parts of me that I like are my eyes and hair.

19. What item of clothing or accessory gives you the most confidence? And why? Probably a miniskirt to put over pants such as jeans. I like the way it looks and I feel it lets me be who I am inside.

20. How important is hair and make-up to you? Hair and makeup is very important to me-It includes the only parts of me I like.

21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for? Myself.

22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women? I think that in the past there has been much more pressure on women but pressure on men is steadily growing. Men have to look certain ways. The same is true for women.

Final Section

28. Do you think beauty is just in the mind of the beholder? I think so. Different
people have different versions of beauty in their minds.

29. Do think truth is beauty? I think that those who always tell the truth have a certain beauty about them because you can always trust what they say-there is no secrets in the relationship. Truth itself, however, is a harsh thing. It can be beautiful. Sometimes it is not so pretty.

30. Do you think your opinion of beauty changed whilst answering this questionnaire? Not in the least. I did clear a few things up in my mind.

General Information
1. What age are you? I'm 21.
2. Are you male or female? Female.
3. Are you single or in a relationship? Single.
4. Occupation? Full-time college student. I work part-time at Tokyo Steakhouse.

Main section
5. What do you think beauty is? An aura of sorts. It doesn't particularly have anything to do with how a person looks, but rather, the attitude that a person exudes.
6. Out of all the famous women who have lived, who do you think was/is the most beautiful? Kate Winslet. She has a beautiful figure, a lovely personality, and is comfortable with her weight, which happens to be much more realistic than that of the most Hollywood actresses. Ever since I started to become interested in fashion and cosmetics, I think -- in a way -- I've always aspired to be as beautiful as her.
7. What makes her appear so beautiful to you? I believe I've already stated that, heh.
8. Do you find the latest fashions beautiful? That's a very non-specific question, so I can't really answer. Today's fashions are as varied as they've ever been. You can find any sort of style to match your tastes.
9. Who is your favourite fashion designer? Vera Wang. Her gowns are so beautifully classic.
10. Who do you think dictates what is beautiful? And why? By and large, Hollywood.
11. How much of an influence do you think the media has on beauty? Too much.
12. Do you think beauty is linked with confidence? Very much.
13. Do you think stereotyping affects what is classed as beautiful? Very much.
14. What do you think detracts from someone's beauty? Surgeries and a poor attitude.
15. What do you think is a symbol of beauty in this day and age? Sex appeal. Skin. Money. Attitude. All things I hate.

Section just for women
16. Do you have any idols that influence your appearance? What is it about them that you find inspiring? As I said earlier, Kate Winslet. Like myself, she has an hourglass figure, and despite society's old lust for hourglass figures, they're really not terribly flattering in today's fashions. Kate manages to find a way to flaunt her body type, rather than hide it, as I've always tried to do. I take notes from her.
17. What is your ideal body shape? Petite and slender.
18. What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the most beautiful? And why? Knee-length, uber feminine dresses, often with lots of lace and ruffles. Typically over pants. I feel they better characterize myself, as well as flatter my body type. I also love boots and heels.
19. What item of clothing or accessory gives you the most confidence? And why? The above. If I feel beautiful, I am confident.
20. How important is hair and make-up to you? Very. I love fashion and trying out different styles, and my enthusiasm extends to hair and makeup.
21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for? Myself. And perhaps someday I'll end up snaring some dashing young doctor with my looks. ^_~
22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women? Women, definitely.

Final Section
28. Do you think beauty is just in the mind of the beholder? Very much.
29. Do think truth is beauty? No, much to the contrary, I find beauty to be a very contrived idea.
30. Do you think your opinion of beauty changed whilst answering this questionnaire? No.

female
3. Are you single or in a relationship?
single
4. Occupation?
full time student, till girl of a saturday

Main section
5. What do you think beauty is?
beauty is a presence, like when your around someone you "feel" their beauty almost, and its fluid, part of a continum, its affected by time, culture, age, gender etc. but its not just a physical thing, it can be emotional, inner, so many varieties
6. Out of all the famous women who have lived, who do you think was/is the most beautiful?
erm...well im not too aware of women from before my generation, but audry hepburn was amazingly beautiful, and liv tyler is the same...if i haveto chose, i chose liv
7. What makes her appear so beautiful to you?
she is physically very beautiful, but shes so softly spoken, and calm, and graceful and poised. she also seems...warm, she comes across as exceedingly friendly and comforting...maternal almost
8. Do you find the latest fashions beautiful?
hmm...i find some of them very beautiful, but at the same time i think the fact that they are the "latest fashions" makes them very ugly almost, everyone is a carbon copy of each other these days. and also, i know im 17, and may sound a bit "old" (no offense anyone) but the fashion of bearing as much skin as possible, is so far off beautiful.
9. Who is your favourite fashion designer?
erm...not a big uptodate follower of fashion, but matthew williamsons dresses always look beautiful, and feminine, like they have been designed for women, not for women who are so skinny they are almost like men
10. Who do you think dictates what is beautiful? And why?
well the media plays such a huge role, as it affects you, but it also affects your friends, and family, who then also affect you. but at the end of the day, i feel like i decide what is beauty, whether thats fully true, i dont know
11. How much of an influence do you think the media has on beauty?
a huge influence, the media is everywhere, you cant escape it, but we all still have free will, and our own opinions.
12. Do you think beauty is linked with confidence?
yes, and no. i think its easier to be confident if you are beautiful, but you can be "ugly" to others but be the most confident person in the world, but you can also be the prettiest person in the world, and be majorly unconfident, but yes i do belive they are linked, but its your perception of beauty which gives you confidence
13. Do you think stereotyping affects what is classed as beautiful?
definatly.
14. What do you think detracts from someone's beauty?
i think a persons personality is definatly the biggest factor. beautiful people, who act like tramps, or tarts or what ever you want to call them, and beautiful people who simply act horribly, and malisciously (sp?) loose any beauty they have
15. What do you think is a symbol of beauty in this day and age?
i think its your wieght, and also how "conventional" you are

Section just for women (If you are male please skip this section)
16. Do you have any idols that influence your appearance? What is it about them that you find inspiring?
i wouldnt say idols, i see people who are "pretty" or who i like and think "yeah thats a cool look, maybe ill try it one day", or even strangers on the street, but i wouldnt call them idols. i think i find people who seem "comfortable" inspiring, now i dont necessarily mean slobs, bu people who look good, but who look happy in their own skin, and their own clothes, and thats something i will always want to try and acheive
17. What is your ideal body shape?
well ive accepted in curvy, after a few years of disliking it, but my ideal body shape is curvy. i love my curves, and i why shouldnt i? although i would like to loose a few pounds
18. What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the most beautiful? And why?
good underwear. something that flatters your shape, but makes you feel sexy and confident, even though nobody will see it, it gives you a "wow" factor in your head, which can then eminate from you inside, to your physical appearence
19. What item of clothing or accessory gives you the most confidence? And why?
see above.
20. How important is hair and make-up to you?
important enough for me to care, but not important enough for me to loose time and sleep over. Id never get up at some unearthly hour like many people i know to abuse my hair with a blowdryer to make it straight. but i do like to have presentable hair. and with make up, yeah its nice to wear it, and it does give you confidence, but i can happily leave the house without any makeup on, and not care in the slightest.
21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for?
for myself. and myself only
22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women?
i think there is more pressure to look beautiful for other women, women are so much more judgemental.

Final Section
28. Do you think beauty is just in the mind of the beholder?
yes, totally. when we look at someone we all see different things, our memories of them, if we already know them, and this makes them seem beautiful
29. Do you think truth is beauty?
yes, a person who comes across as truely beautiful never seems to be putting on an act, or pretending, they just see themselves.
30. Do you think your opinion of beauty changed whilst answering this questionnaire?
i wouldnt say its changed, but this definatly made me think about things more, yes



hope this helped :lol:

7. What makes her appear so beautiful to you?
They both exude such vibrant confidence that it even makes you feel more comfortable about yourself
8. Do you find the latest fashions beautiful?
The new fall line is everything I could have hoped for, an uproar of 60's mod and boho chic combined with a romantic flair. It's a beautiful fashion oxymoron.
9. Who is your favourite fashion designer?
Hmmm, at the moment EITHER Anna Sui of Christian LaCroix
10. Who do you think dictates what is beautiful? And why?
Clothing wise it is a combination of our opinions about the actual lines, our past opinions of the designers, and our interpretation of the press coverage. Peoplewise, it is a combination of the current media "beautiful" with one that we fell more likely to be able to imitate.

On the average person, about 50%.

Denim mini skirts and bright tees. It's just how I feel most comfortable.
19. What item of clothing or accessory gives you the most confidence? And why?
A long necklace and a clutch. Classic elegance with a modern twist.
20. How important is hair and make-up to you?
Hair should be simple and easy to work with, but well put together. Hair is how people remember you, it is, after all, the biggest part of your head. Make up should be minimal and mostly natural. It is meant to enhance, not mask.
21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for?
Other woman, mostly. Men are much less judgemental.
22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women?
Other woman.


Final Section
28. Do you think beauty is just in the mind of the beholder?
Personally, yes. Commercially, no.

Britney Spears..before she got pregnant.

General Information
1. What age are you?::
21-30
2. Are you male or female?:: Female
3. Are you single or in a relationship?:: [/B]Single
4. Occupation?:: Receptionist, at the moment

Main section
5. What do you think beauty is?::
Something that's pleasing to look at.
6. Out of all the famous women who have lived, who do you think was/is the most beautiful?:: I can think of several, but I'll go with Angelina Jolie.
7. What makes her appear so beautiful to you?:: I guess it's that she's graceful, has a confident posture, I like her eyes, and she has a gorgeous smile.
8. Do you find the latest fashions beautiful?:: Not usually.
9. Who is your favourite fashion designer? :: I don't have one, but then again, I don't pay any attention to fashion designers, so I wouldn't know.
10. Who do you think dictates what is beautiful? And why?:: The individual... Like I said before, beauty is something that's pleasing to look at. A sunset is beautiful to you if you enjoy looking at it. If you don't care, or if you are in a bad mood, it might not be very beautiful in your eyes. Everyone has different tastes. I also think the conceptions that your society as a whole has of beauty are going to color your own personal tastes. Whatever you're comfortable with seeing will probably be more beautiful to you. I think people are more attracted to those who look like what they are used to seeing. I think you find beauty in things that remind you of yourself or of people/things that you love.
11. How much of an influence do you think the media has on beauty?:: It has a big influence on the kinds of people we think are beautiful, because celebrities are familiar to us. If you grow up seeing a certain type of person, you are more likely to think people who look like that are beautiful.
12. Do you think beauty is linked with confidence?:: A healthy amount of confidence can be attractive, because you have better posture, you probably take better care of yourself and you probably aren't afraid to let your personality show. On the other hand, few things are less attractive to me than a person who has too high of an opinion of himself.
13. Do you think stereotyping affects what is classed as beautiful?:: I'm not sure what the difference between this and the media is. They both affect what we perceive as beauty in the same way, I think.
14. What do you think detracts from someone's beauty?:: Poor hygiene, for starters... Always having a sour/haughty/mean/stuck-up expression on your face doesn't really help, either.
15. What do you think is a symbol of beauty in this day and age?:: I couldn't begin to tell you. I don't think you could accurately give a symbol to beauty.

Section just for women (If you are male please skip this section)
16. Do you have any idols that influence your appearance? What is it about them that you find inspiring? :: No, I don't
17. What is your ideal body shape?:: Curvy... I mean, not too much so, but not stick thin, either.
18. What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the most beautiful? And why?:: My wrap skirts from Thailand, bracelets and hair ornaments. They're just very feminine. They make me feel cute. :crying:
19. What item of clothing or accessory gives you the most confidence?:: Anything red, for some reason, makes me feel more confident.
20. How important is hair and make-up to you?:: Hair is very important to me. I don't wear makeup all the time, and when I do it's not usually a lot.
21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for?:: Myself. If I feel like I look good, I'm more confident. If I feel I look like crap, then my whole attitude is a downer.
22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women?:: Feels like women have more pressure, but it could just be because I'm a woman.

Final Section
28. Do you think beauty is just in the mind of the beholder? ::
Yes
29. Do you think truth is beauty?:: Not necessarily. The truth can be ugly, too.
30. Do you think your opinion of beauty changed whilst answering this questionnaire?:: Not really, but it helped me to sort out some of my thoughts.

General Information
1. What age are you? 21-30
2. Are you male or female? Female
3. Are you single or in a relationship? Single
4. Occupation? I was a Graphics Coordinator. Now I'm going to college for Advertising.

Main section
5. What do you think beauty is? I agree with the phrase "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". I think that what I consider beautiful might not be seen as such in different parts of the world. However, I must say that confidence is beautiful to me as well. The way someone carries themselves. The way they treat others and look onto their environment.
6. Out of all the famous women who have lived, who do you think was/is the most beautiful? Vivien Leigh.
7. What makes her appear so beautiful to you? Her poise, her levels of confidence. Her aura... basically her whole presentation. Vivien Leigh was very elegant. She held herself with ease and grace. She didn't try hard to impress people or win the attention of anyone. She just... was.
8. Do you find the latest fashions beautiful? I don't find repetitiveness beautiful. I think a lot of this bohemian craze is very unflattering. It's simulation, like nobody has their own style - they're only wearing what people tell them to. There's no creativity.
9. Who is your favourite fashion designer? Honestly, I don't have one. I wear whatever looks good on me - whether it's a no-name brand or a Gucci.
10. Who do you think dictates what is beautiful? And why? Well, I suppose that now, it's mostly the media. They say Anjelina Jolie's a goddess-like beauty, so therefore, she is. They say that bohemian clothes are what's hot, so everyone now wears them. Even those Goths who dress in all black and paste on weird make-up... they're a product of someone else. They claim that they want to be "different" when in fact they're just following a trend. We give other people that power. We are bored with our lives so we tune in just to get a sense of clarity. It's ridiculous, but it's true.
11. How much of an influence do you think the media has on beauty? (see question #10)
12. Do you think beauty is linked with confidence? (see question #5)
13. Do you think stereotyping affects what is classed as beautiful? Sometimes... For some reason I can't answer this question right.
14. What do you think detracts from someone's beauty? Their attitude. Physically, they could be the most beautiful person in the world to me, but if later their attitude starts to take a shift - they become horrible, nasty and extremely arrogant - my view of them will change. I won't think they're beautiful any longer.
15. What do you think is a symbol of beauty in this day and age? This depends on where in the world you live. I'd say, for a canadian, that the symbol for beauty is being healthy, confident, and optimistic. Sadly, the way you look is important as well when it comes to such things as first impressions. No one will approach you if you have a hump or something like that.

Section just for women (If you are male please skip this section)
16. Do you have any idols that influence your appearance? What is it about them that you find inspiring? For clothes, Jennifer Aniston. The things she wore on Friends, often, I wouldn't see in magazines or on the runaway. Her fashion sense was calm and tasteful, and I loved that. For looks, I'd say my mother.
17. What is your ideal body shape? Personally, I'd say an hourglass shape like Jennifer Lopez.
18. What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the most beautiful? And why? I don't really know. There isn't one particular thing.
19. What item of clothing or accessory gives you the most confidence? And why? (see question #18)
20. How important is hair and make-up to you?I try to make my hair look nice. I straighten it, or I put a bunch of gel in it to make it look presentable. As for make-up, I only use those eyebrow pencils... Unless I'm going to a party, or on a date... but usually, I stay simple.
21. Who do you wish to look beautiful for? Nobody, at the moment. I wish that people would see me as beautiful for whatever I look like without wearing make-up, or fancy clothes. Just me.
22. Do you find that there is more pressure to look beautiful for men or other women? The pressure is greater for Women, but I think Men have their moments too.


Final Section
28. Do you think beauty is just in the mind of the beholder? Not 'just'. It's a combination of that particular phrase, and what the media feeds us.
29. Do you think truth is beauty? Er... that depends on what the truth is. The truth isn't always beautiful.
30. Do you think your opinion of beauty changed whilst answering this questionnaire? No.

He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Thanks everyone I really am overwhelmed how many people have taken the time to fill it in.

If anyone else does want to do my questionnaire, please do so as I have only just got back to University this week so although I will be starting to look at this information soon, anything anyone has to add will still be useful to me. :)

Once I have Completed some of my Dissertation I will post a few excerpts on here of my findings for anyone who is interested.
Thanks again everyone

Jo :)
