“She is a peacock in everything but beauty.”
Interestingly enough, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a few actresses and influencers lately. These ladies have ranged from red carpet hosts to beauty and lifestyle creators. It is so interesting to see someone after following them on Instagram! Some people live up to their images and others are quite tiny in person! It is even more cool to meet someone and find out after the fact that she is actually a celebrity! She may appear so chill in person that it’s hard to see her in another, more glamorous light.
When I saw this editorial of Maja Salamon for Harper’s Bazaar UK October 2016, I also thought of someone living a glamorous lifestyle. Yet I thought this quote was interesting as well. Someone may appear beautiful and create a wonderful image for herself or her brand. But, is she really that person in real life? I’ve met influencers and actresses who really are warm, fun and inviting. They are as glad to meet you as you are to meet them. I’ve also met one or two on the other end of the spectrum. They list themselves as “public figures” and are quite aloof and hard to speak to in person. It’s as if they are even doing you a favor by gracing you with their presence! At that point, all perceptions of beauty are shattered.
You may post beautiful pictures of a beautiful life, but must remember to cultivate that internal beauty too! That’s what will last and show through.
Have you had similar experiences?
Have a lovely week!
