international player’s anthem

i’ve been thinking about what the women of different cultures and societies do to feel beautiful. from plump to slender or reserved or outgoing, pale geishas, long necks in rural thai villages, straight hair and tan in the states, whatever it is. but i’m starting to question if all the effort/pain/dedication that goes into these transformations to look beautiful really serve for the woman’s confidence and sense of self or to get a man? do men undergo such “beautifying” rituals? i suppose so. either way, beauty is subjective.

this is in paris, and this is what our parents were like in the 70s. youth is a universal  spontaneous joy.
