Pretty is a Set of Skills

A recent article on Jezebel discusses the fact that “pretty is a set of skills“. It discusses the different ways that conforming to a certain idea of pretty requires understanding and skill with fashion, hair, and make-up. The one idea that is implied throughout, but that is never stated outright, is also the idea the pretty is a significant financial investment.

We will discuss more of this idea when we discuss the body in a few weeks.
