Subject: Did not want to continue an already long thread so I will just ask the question : What do some of you mean when you say a contestant looks odd? Do you mean they dont look like everyone else , like the 'odd' one out? They dont have european features? What do you mean when you describe someone as odd?

[> [> [> Subject: so if someone is striking, you count them out?as opposed to a more traditional look? I am so curious after reading one of the latest posts and seeing a non traditional but beautiful girl be called odd. I want to understand why that was the word used.

[> [> [> [> Subject: Of course not, but it also doesn’t mean an auto-entry just because they’re striking. Striking can be good or bad, depending on taste obv.

[> Subject: I think the traditional standards of symmetry apply. Not naming any particular contestants because I think this whole class is beautiful in their own way, but there is someone who has very close set eyes this year and another contestant with very wide set eyes. Sometimes very simple features make someone look different (odd) Just thoughts.

[> [> Subject: so the simpler they look the better? I guess Im asking for more clarification because in the beauty world (at very high levels) different or odd is beautiful. Why do we not appreciate that in the beauty pageant world?

[> [> [> Subject: Just google facial symmetry. Uniqueness is not the same thing. Winnie Harlow, Ashley Graham, Halima Aden, even our current queens all have extremely diverse and unique features certainly not 'simple' but all very symmetrical. I did a research paper on this subject back in the day. It is interesting how the human mind perceives what we consider beautiful.

[> [> [> [> Subject: I just did and I am now realizing that many of the most famous people in the world dont have facial symmetry. So it brings me back to my secondary question of why the pageant world is still looking for that. Maybe thats why our winners become mostly forgettable outside of our knowledge? They arent distinct enough?

[> Subject: To me, if someone says that person looks odd, it's negative. If someone says the person looks odd, they need to be a little more specific. As far as I feel, I like non-pageanty features . For example, I was in love with Flaviana Matata (first of all, her name!); not only was she beautiful, but her shaved head was so refreshing to see at Miss Universe.
