What is your beauty ideal?

Angela: First Friday of Lent and this picture Monica Belluci is got me mea culpa mea culpa! As an additional note, I must say to me she looks absolutely stunning.

The male ideal of beauty is a little neglected.

My ideal in masculine beauty is like this, mainly It would be an apparent normality without actually entering into the counterpoint where male and female beauty merge in a certain way.what these images reflect, it has to be a beauty opposite to what I consider or demand in women.


Don't be surprised, one thing has nothing to do with the other.

The men of the Maghreb would be the best example of my ideal.

It does not have to reach the step where the beauty that we consider universal already appears

As these two images below I already consider that they reach a level where it is not my ideal of male beauty.

Well, we are completely different again. I think the man in the last picture is stunningly gorgeous. The prior man is too exotic for me. The first ones are of homely men. There are handsome Magrebi's in my opinion, but that's not them.

You're right; we have neglected the men.

I'll add a few; they haven't changed for a couple of years.

How could I have forgotten the following.

Michele Morrone; my husband's type. He is the actor from "365 Days". For all the simulated sex and his gorgeousness, it was a disappointing movie. There was zero chemistry between him and the Polish actress imo, at least on his part; or maybe he's just not that good an actor, but oh what looks. Be still my heart. :)

Italian men who look like these actors or models are considered highly attractive all around the globe.
I think, that there are basically no cultures or people who would find these men not handsome. So, beauty is not always in the eyes of the beholder. In fact, there is a universal beauty standard that is deeply rooted in humans. You should open a thread where people can vote for the most attractive Italian actor/model with these guys.

You prefer only the darkest of the beautiful Italian men I have posted? Don't like the ones on the previous post?

No, I don't think I'll make a contest of it. If people wish to comment on a particular one it's their choice, although as you say I don't think there's one of them who wouldn't be considered universally handsome, and that includes the French entries, and, for that matter, the beautiful men of Hollywood's Golden Age, who were Irish, English, Welsh, and German mixes of various kinds.

As for the Italian ones, we're lucky, and unlucky, in the beauty of our men.
 
If I were going just by still photos I wouldn't include her: Matilda DeAngelis of Bologna.

Mostly it's her nose, which she can't help, and her eyebrows, which she can, and that she looks too stick like. However, I saw her in the series The Undoing, with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. She was extraordinarily gorgeous, and since she was naked a good amount of time, that included her figure. I don't know what it was; did she gain weight, was it because they made her darker skinned in order to play a Latina, made her hair wilder, shadow her face to make her nose look different? I don't know, but she was breathtaking; it was completely understandable that she would make men, and women, mad. The other wonderful thing is that even at such a young age she was able to create a character whom you would want to hate vulnerable, and so irresistible that you are "on her side" throughout the film no matter her behavior.

There's enough evidence that European men contra memes are drawn to women darker than them, at least to a point. This is reflected by Far Eastern and Latina women outperforming European women in measures of desirability, conduct in the Americas, and the evidence that Euro HGs were far darker than interlopers who mingled with them.
 
"The socially constructed notion that physical attractiveness is one of women's most important assets, and something all women should strive to achieve and maintain," says the feminine beauty ideal. From culture to culture, the feminine beauty ideal, which includes female body shape, varies.

In most of her photos she looks like a Hedy Lamar type to me, but more natural and softer, somehow.

The addition of just a bit of Central Asian or "Turkic" to an Anatolian Neolithic/Iran farmer mix can create really beautiful people:

Handsome until he dies, I think, especially if the trial goes well for him and he's able to heal and put all that evil witch has done to him in the past.

Just incredibly gorgeous when young:

I am partial to Claire Forlani and Olivia Wilde:

Well, I'm with you as to Claire Forlani. I really like her face, her smile, how she speaks through her eyes, the sweetness and yet intelligence she can project, her soft voice.

She always strikes me as much more "European" than most American actresses.

She was raised in England by an Italian father and an English mother. Both my son and I fell in love with her in Meet Joe Black. I think you nailed her characteristics but I prefer not to analyze her :bigsmile:.

Well, there you have it, then. :) Can't imagine why I never looked her up. I just assumed she was American.

I'm also sort of in love with her, although in a different way. I want to be best friends with her; I want my son to bring her home and tell me he want's to marry her. Heck, if I were a man I'd want to marry her myself! :)
