At TOI, beauty is multidimensional and grounded in the belief that everyone is abundant and unique.
While definitions of beauty do still today constantly change, it seems there is a common trigger behind all those definitions and therefore pressures to conform. Over centuries, since the Greek and Roman started almost 2’400 years ago setting the Western beauty standards, the power structure of society has set the tone to what’s being considered a beauty or beautiful.
From Ancient Egyptians to the Chinese Han Dynasty, from the area of Heroin Chic models in the 1990s to today, the key focus when it comes to beauty has practically always been that distinct focus on the face and body shape, proportions, skin tones and haircuts and color – from slender to fully-figured, from pale to tanned, from blonde to opal. It even led to mathematical formulas on how to best describe beauty or a beautiful person.
In contrast, Ancient Greek standards considered Beauty an excellence, like being honest or brave. Ancient Greek beliefs on Attractiveness were driven by the combination of physical Beauty coupled with ‘goodness of spirit’. In this sense probably the earliest definitions around inner- and outer beauty aspects to a person.
