Quick hit: more wisdom on beauty from the media

by Chloe Angyal

Right now, Vanity Fair's website is showcasing "a decade's worth of drop-dead gorgeous portraits," including Scarlett Johanssen, Giselle Bunchen, Anne Hathaway and Lindsay Lohan.

A quick glance through this slideshow reveals that, of the 22 women who appear, 21 are white, and 20 are in their mid-thirties or younger. All of them are airbrushed, and most of them are in some state of undress.

What does this retrospective tell us about what it takes to be "drop-dead gorgeous"?
