Modern beauty lives under a microscope. Possibly never before in the history of civilization have gorgeous women in the spotlight received so much scrutiny. We know them from the red carpet and we know them from the 7-11. We know them from their hacked cell phones and leaked sex tapes and we know them from the endless mill of gossip that fuels their fame. Somehow this is accepted as the price of contemporary stardom and the kitten/siren/starlet/muse keeps her lovely head up, maintaining some unexpected views and some unpredictable responses to the adulation and the media mauling. They are desired BUT they are dissected. And they know it. Megan Fox, that tattooed twenty something made famous by 'The Transformers", speaks for a whole generation when she admits "I have a sick feeling of being mocked all the time". Adulation is always closer to envy than love. Seasoned European siren Monica Belucci once said "They can forgive your intelligence but they don't forgive beauty" adding sagely "In the future I'll be better because beauty can't be at the centre of everything." But it is, Monica, and it always will be. Manufactured grace is standard. Many of the most famous beauties in media have been working on their image since childhood. Beyoncé, like Kylie was a professional from primary school. That lifelong discipline and dedication has resulted in massive wealth and a term for her bottom being contributed to the Oxford English Dictionary: Bootylicious. Then there are other extremes; Deeta Von Teese openly admits to complete painted artifice by "inventing herself" every morning while Kate Winslett podium weeps over her "realness" with every new acting award she receives. Chloe Sevigny, a fashionista and art house film maverick admits that her face is "not interesting enough and not pretty enough" but she still has the bullet proof body of a pole dancer. Joan Crawford once acidly quipped "if you want the girl next door, go next door" But, today, if we do, we expect to find Megan Gale baking cookies and not Doris Day. We want normal, but on a hyper normal plane. The expectation of hard-boiled glamour is built on basic raw materials (Rihanna's feline eyes, Eva Green's sullen pout, Kylie's bum) then amped a hundred fold by tinsel and trickery reserved only for immortals...and Hollywood.
