WHAT IS BEAUTY?

Published

what-is-beauty

In all that it is, beauty, for many centuries till date has been the achieving aim of the arts, be it Literature, music, painting or fashion. Coupled with its sister adjective beautiful, they are the fewest words in the English language defined according to dictionary standard. This has caused the word beauty to graduate from a state of being a word to an actual “state of being”.

The simple six letter word till date continues to be one of the most talked about issues paving way for controversies, ideologies of different kinds and day to day discussions. Many have chosen to agree to disagree or conclude that the issue of Beauty is highly subjective.

Almost like second nature, the mention of the word beauty takes the mind to the image of a woman. Woman has grown to become the symbolism and epitome of beauty. Every human born a woman has the discerning right to be referred to as “beautiful”, every woman is a beauty.

Our evolving world and societies have seen the ideology of “a beautiful woman”, change with time. This is especially so in the fashion and entertainment industry: all which have a very big influence on people.  Different societies have different perceptions of what beauty is. There are numerous societal ideologies as well as worldwide ones. For instance in Mauritius to be plump is beautiful while in France to be slim is. It is also seen as beautiful to have a long neck in Kenya.

However, currently a beautiful woman in the global eye is perceived as a woman with a lot of curves; Very small waist, a firm round butt and firm breast as well. Her size isn’t much of an issue at the moment.

The million dollar question then is… “What is beauty?” Many have come to define beauty in different ways, a common description and saying is ‘Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”. Another group of people believe there is physical and inward beauty. After many years of reading from different viewpoints and ideologies, it is really safe to ask;

What isn’t beauty?

Thinking about it, the “beautiful woman”  trend has moved from  being white, to being blonde, to being dark skinned, mixed blood, Caucasian, tall, petit, slim, and coming down to our  immediate society  from being dark skinned to light skinned and recently drifting between being more natural  haired and Afro centric versus wearing a lot of makeup and hair extension. So what is beauty? Or better still, what isn’t beauty? The worldchanging ideologies of beauty and the image of a beautiful woman is itself a proof that every image of a woman or being of a woman is beauty. It indirectly answers the question what isn’t beauty? With this, the most important thing every woman should know is that, aside all the ideologies and trends, at the end of the day she, in herself is beauty.  As said early on, women are born with the birth right of being beautiful and so the only thing left for them to do is learn to get to know themselves, accept, appreciate, love and relish in their feminine quality. When a woman feels good about herself from the inside it naturally glows on the outside making her beautiful in her own self. Beauty is in all women, it just takes you to fetch it from within and let it shine. This shouldn’t be much of a hard work but rather women should have pleasure in finding themselves.

Ghanaian women have been noticed to be very beautiful women worldwide. Many male foreigners cannot help but confess to the beauty they have seen. However, it is very noticeable that Ghanaian women are reserved and laidback when it comes to beauty and its relations. Many tend to feel better being a part of a trend or waiting see a trend start before they come out .In a world that accepts people for who they are, it is time the Ghanaian woman takes pride in who she is and come out .

Over the years, Lux beauty bar soap has helped women realize the importance of being truly themselves and feeling beautiful. They have been able to help women find pleasure in being beautiful. Back in 2004, still very young, I remember seeing Genevieve Nnaji walk with so much charm and elegance in that Lux advert.

My fairytale wish to be Nnaji came to a halt when the voice over said “Star brings out the star in you” from that moment I knew I could have all that Genevieve being no one but myself.  While not directly addressing the issue, Lux has rather practically proven to women that being beautiful requires that you feel good about yourself and look good as well. With the use of different women from all walks of life as brand ambassadors they send a message that every woman is beautiful and most importantly, a woman can only achieve beauty at a time when she is absolutely and truly herself, a time when she can embrace herself and feel beautiful. A feeling that moves around her sending messages to people around that she is proud in her womanhood.

Women have always worshiped the “shower time ritual” and LUX understands that it is at that time, when she is natural in all forms that she feels completely a woman, igniting her femininity and relishing I it.

Lux believes that beauty is one of the female instincts that should not be denied. It is what makes a woman, it is what makes beauty. If you don’t feel something, how do you express it? How does it show?

It is time the Ghanaian woman gets to know herself better, accept and love herself and relish in the power she holds by simply being a woman. Remember, every woman is beautiful; she is the definition of beauty.

Brazilian footballer Neymar faces fresh police questioning over claim he raped a model in Paris hotel room

Published

on

Brazilian footballer, Neymar, 26, will be questioned for the second time over claims he raped a model in a Paris Hotel room.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has reportedly agreed to fly into São Paulo in Brazil to meet with detectives over the alleged rape attack on 26-year-old model, Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza. 

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr. Juliana Lopes Bussacos, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: ‘He will be treated like any other citizen. He has the same rights as any other man.

‘I have interviewed many men in these situations and everyone is equal and they all have the right to tell their story and produce evidence to back it up.’

With detectives desperate to get to the bottom of what happened,  Dr. Juliana said she couldn’t enter into details of the rape accuser’s complaint due to confidentiality.

‘There are so many questions and answers that need clarification. He says he did not rape her and she has said she has evidence.

The former Barcelona striker is expected to give his statement in the next 48 hours, and then officers will decide if there is a case and if it is necessary to bring them together.

This comes after it was revealed that Neymar could be cleared of the rape accusation levied against him within days over lack of more evidence from his accuser.

The Brazilian model has been informed by her lawyer that she faces seeing her case against the Paris Saint-Germain star dropped except there is more evidence. She also faces losing the second lawyer to represent her after he said he could not carry on if his professional ‘trust’ in her was compromised.

Trindade’s attorney Danileo Garcia de Andrade said he still believed Ms. Trindade had a case, but he would step aside if there was a lack of evidence.

Mr. Daileo said he had given her a deadline to produce the video and photographs she claimed to have had which would help prove her allegations of rape against the Brazilian superstar. But if the evidence was not forthcoming, he said, he would drop the case next week.

Mr de Andrade told Brazil’s UOL Esporte: ‘If the police investigation of the supposed break-in where she lives shows there was no break-in, I am leaving the case.’

He added: ‘The attorney-client relationship is based always on trust. If there is no trust, then there is no reason to stay on’

Trindade claimed she was the victim of ‘aggression and rape’ by the Paris Saint-Germain player in a hotel room in the French capital on May 15. She said the encounter started out consensual but quickly turned violent, leaving her with bruises and scrapes to her legs and buttocks, with Neymar refusing to stop.

She told police her tablet containing a seven-minute video, messages and photos she alleged incriminated the footballer, was stolen in a burglary at her apartment. But the authorities said they found no major signs of a break-in and only Ms. Trindade’s fingerprints and those of her maid and friends around the flat.

Neymar has strongly denied raping her but admitted that what happened between them was consensual.
