Wow she is stunning! She

Wow she is stunning! She looks like a reincarnation of that lovely vision of materialism and superficiality, the mature Barbie doll. Oddly enough, most women I've met that looked like this were actually unusually intelligent, unlike the stereotypical blonde jokes would make you think. I'm hoping there is more to this competition than just looks. I'm concerned that there are too many young women that look like this, and you can't see their real eyes and faces for all the makeup. I imagine there are some teens that like to emulate this advertisement for popular beauty products and designer clothes, but this is supposed to be a teen competition. Do they have any competitions that the competitors are encouraged to look like actual teenagers? Or must we settle for a homogenization of beauty?

Just My Opinion, I said she

Just My Opinion, I said she was stunning. It's not her fault she's fallen for this hook, line and sinker. If she's smart, she'll rise above this superficial game.
