Isn't she lovely?

What is your concept of beauty? Each and everyone of us holds very different views as far as beauty concept is concerned.

Do you often hear people say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"? Well, with Katie Holmes, it is easy. I think the percentage of people in agreement with the title of this post will be very high. She's a natural beauty, and we certainly don't have to argue on the concept at all.

Isn't she lovely? Beautiful? Gorgeous? What lovely skin, lovely smile, lovely dress (love that purple, grey shade!) covering a wonderfully, lovely body, AND...Ooooo, what a lovely handbag! Can anyone tell me where I can get something like that? HAHA!

KATIE HOLMES, the natural beauty.

LO & BEHOLD, America's Most Wanted Celebrity Body Parts!

I stumbled unto the article below. I am posting for your reading pleasure. :-) Yes, I find it amusing, if not slightly enlightening. Don't we all sometimes envy those beautiful people we see on the silverscreen. So bewitched we are that we secretly wish we look like our stars. So here we are, with a list of those body parts that we secretly wish we own. Well, we all  know if we ever put them together into one person, he/she will look frightful. What makes a person beautiful is more than the sum of the parts, yes?

What makes us beautiful is who we are inside. The person inside.

Having said that, let's enjoy the article. And please take it with a pinch of salt, yeah? OK, a lot of salt. HAHA!


When it comes to figures, Jennifer Aniston’s is pretty flawless. But for those looking for some help from the scalpel, long, lean and supermodel-y beat out the petite “girl-next-door” look in 2010.
Aniston came in second for the “Most Desired Female Body” on the 14th Annual “Famed Hottest Looks” survey, compiled by Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeons Dr. Richard Fleming and Dr. Toby Mayer.

Even after giving birth in December 2009, Brazilian-born supermodel Gisele Bundchen was the most requested body by the doctors' patients. “Different body types are represented on the list because most women are shaped differently and want to look naturally beautiful,” explained Dr. Fleming. “Some women want the lean look like Gisele, while others want to retain their roundness – just not too round. Men, on the other hand, all want a six-pack regardless of their body type.”On that note, Mark Wahlberg took the top spot, pursued by six-packing Channing Tatum and Tyson Beckford.
Aniston came in second again in the category of “Most Desired Hair” (first was country crooner Taylor Swift, third was reality starlet Kim Kardashian) and when it came to schnozzes, Natalie Portman was 2010’s winner, followed closely by Emma Stone and category veteran Nicole Kidman.

In the lips category, Angelina Jolie came in second for the first time in quite some time. The Oscar-winning beauty, famous for her plump pout, was stopped by 26-year-old, newly single, Scarlett Johansson.
The docs said in 2010, keeping it real was the top priority for those seeking artificial enhancements.
“The biggest trend we have seen this year is that patients are requesting a more natural look. If you review the names on the list, you will notice that all of those people look naturally beautiful,” added Mayer. “We have been performing plastic surgery for 35 years and after 35 years of stressing the non-surgical look, our list reflects non-surgical looking people.”
