Red-blooded men naturally seek feminine beauty, and they will stumble across it, but they constitute a numerical minority. Since top fashion models and beauty pageant contestants usually lack in the feminine beauty department, the promotion of feminine beauty among the majority requires novel approaches. Here is one such approach.

Here is a news item that has gotten some attention in the mainstream media. Australian researcher Phillippa Diedrichs conducted a study that found that using very thin women models does not increase the likelihood of women buying the advertised product compared to using women within a healthy weight range. The study involved making a series of advertisements for underwear, a haircare product and a party dress, modeled by a size-8 woman and a roughly size-12 woman. See an example below.

I came across an excellent resource that graphically illustrates the path taken by humans to attain their present form, and we can infer how our sense of facial attractiveness has transformed. This in the form of a book, “The Last Human: A Guide to Twenty Two Species of Extinct Humans.” It does a great job of putting a face on ancestral species leading to modern humans. This book illustrates meticulous reconstructions of fossils. An example of a Homo heidelbergenis reconstruction is shown below.

National Geographic currently has a feature on Neanderthals, a human species that flourished from 175,000 – 27,000 years before present in mostly Europe and to some extent the Middle East. The feature centers on a fossil reconstruction of a Neanderthal woman. Many bony parts, including the skull, come from those of an actual Neanderthal female, and feminized versions of bone remains of a Neanderthal male were used to complete the skeleton. Muscles were added in accordance with the markings on the bones indicating points of attachment of muscles and the size of muscles. The pigmentation is the best guess of the reconstruction team. Genetic analyses have revealed that some Neanderthals had pale skin and red hair.
