تحت الملابس
يقول الإنجليز أن "الجمال بعمق البشرة فقط"، ويرى الرومانيون أن "الجمال من دون حكمة مثل الزهرة في الطين"، بينما يزعم الصينيون أنه "إذا كان هناك ضوء في الروح فسيكون هناك جمال في الشخص".

إلا أن هذه الأمثال العالمية التي تمجد الذات الداخلية فقط تبدو جيدة على الورق، أو عندما تقولها جدة حكيمة. كيف نعلم ما يكمن حقاً تحت ملابسنا مباشرة؟ كيف نرى غير المرئي في ذواتنا؟ كيف نكتشف ما إذا كان الضوء والحكمة يكمنان حقاً تحت كل هذا الجلد والقماش؟

تابعي خديجة السلامي وهي تصور فيلماً عن نجمية المليئة بالحيوية، وتستكشف شوارع صنعاء من دون حجاب، وتصنع صخباً وتفخر بأنها ذاتٌ، حرةٌ، متحررة من الأغلال.

أنظري إلى صور توضح كيفية غيرت توموكو ساوادا، من اليابان، هويتها 400 مرة في محاولاتها لاستكشاف العلاقة بين المظهر والذات الداخلية.

شاهدي فيديو كوكو بيلا الموسيقي "أي يوم الآن"، وانظري كيف تخلق من خلال عملها صورة إيجابية عن نفسها، تلك الصورة التي تستطيع أن تشعر بارتياح حيالها.

أنظري كيف ترتدي النساء حول العالم قلوبهن فوق أكمامهن.

أخبرينا بما يكمن تحت ملابسك: انضمي إلى النقاش!

Take away the clothes and the shoes. Take away the makeup, the jewelry, tattoos and piercing. Take away the various ever-changing haircuts and hair colors. Take away the perfume even.

What is left of me once I get rid of all my “accessories”? Stripped bare, will I finally discover my authentic, but ever-elusive self? Or is my outward appearance, as I have often thought, actually a reflection of myself?

How do you know yourself? How important of a role does your image play in your identity and the way you’re perceived by others?

Per un periodo ho insegnato musica ai bambini tra i 4 e i 6 anni e a parte la fatica(!), era impossibile sottrarsi al fascino della loro spontaneità e autenticità. La cosa che mi è rimasta impressa è che loro valutavano tutto in "bello" o "brutto". Quella maestra era "bella", quell'altra era "brutta" e così con i compagni; ma la bellezza fisica spesso non aveva nulla a che fare con l'idea di bello che abbiamo noi adulti. Erano belle le persone dolci, che li ascoltavano, che li facevano ridere. Forse hanno ragione loro...

How do i know myself? I actually learned not too long ago to love myself. I grew up thinking that i was not pretty enough to be accepted. I had no self-steem no love for myself, didnt believe in myself. Felt that the world expected something else of me. My life revolved around others to be accepted. That's how I was before, did care more for the outside than what the inside felt like. It's taken years but now i look in the mirror and I see true beauty, inner beauty, a woman that has learned to let go of the past, to live the present and leave tomorrow for others to worry. There is no need to worry about what the outside seems to others, I know what i am, what i want, how much i value what God has giving and know that all this will be a reflection of me.

I know it’s not just me. I know that you as well must have read the comments in this conversation and been able to actually imagine some of the people who had written them. I feel like I can actually tell how some of you think, your quirks, your insecurities, your obsessions, your passions. Poets, romantics, restless philosophers, half-serious provocateurs, humble grumblers, honest pure-of-heart.

I am sure that some of you can even recognize yourselves in these reductive and simple nouns and adjectives. Or do you? I guess, in the end, it is all just my personal interpretation.

But, don’t you find it interesting that words typed on a computer screen can speak so much about the writer?

It’s incredible that language—writing in this case—is still so incredibly revelatory. One would think that even language, just like so many other things, would have been flattened out and made anonymous and unexceptional by the global media, internet, and television. No, it still speaks for us, makes us feel like we know one other, without actually seeing or ever meeting.

I see you breathe between the lines, tremble after commas and periods, turn your head wearily after misspellings, look at me sternly after an exclamation mark.

This is why I am so attracted to language and writing in particular. Not only because I feel that only through language can you really try to express yourself and try to be understood, but also because through language, and looking at my own written word, my hand-writing even, I see those flashing, piercing, but alas short-living prism reflections Grace Joh so beautifully and inspirationally writes about.

What is your vehicle of self-expression? How do you reveal yourself to people around you? Do you think people really “know” you?

Clothing rerpresents a person. Little wonder, then, that clothing is important to most people - and an obsession among some youths. For many, though, the preoccupation with clothing goes beyond being style conscious. Many are also aggressively "brand" conscious.

What we wear is not nearly as important as what kind of person we are inside. Nevertheless, whatever our circumstances, it only makes sense to dress appropriately for each occasion. Modesty does not necessarily mean that we have to be out of style. There is nothing wrong with being in style - just as long we don't overdo it. Nor is there anything wrong with wearing clothes of high quality.

It is basic human desire to look presentable and have something new to wear. But extremes could lead us to wear clothes that give others a wrong impression. And if we attach excessive importance to appearance, we could subscribe to the erroneous belief that our worth depends on our "packaging" rather than our inner values. After all, real beauty comes from within not what we wear.

I really like what Lena said about people's souls making their faces beautiful. I think that women tend to judge themselves more harshly than we judge other people, because we don't see how beautiful we look in action. We look in the mirror and we don't see our own souls shining out, so we think that we are less beautiful than other people. I feel lucky, because I have an identical twin who helps me see that I am beautiful. I look at her face and her body, and I love them because I love her; then I can turn that love onto myself and say, "see, I look just like her. I'm beautiful too." If we can learn from our love and compassion for other people and feel love and compassion for ourselves, then we will be able to be as supportive of ourselves as we are of one another.

In this day and age, beauty seems to be too limited to appearance. Beauty should be the adjective that describes one's soul. Personally, I find those who dedicate their lives to goodness and others the most beautiful people out there. The purity, light, and love of their soul always seems to shine through on their faces. People like Ghandi and Mother Theresa are beautiful- their faces are vibrant with love and peace. Their souls are so strong that their outer appearance seems to be so unimportant because all one can see is the beauty of their spirit. We should really ask ourselves how we classify people as beautiful- is it beauty based on their physical appearance, or is it beauty based on their spirit?

I think beauty is something that we create within ourselves. Beauty is what you feel within yourself such as your self confidence, self esteem, values, morals and ethics. Once you have the feeling that you are beautiful then you can express your beauty without clothes, shoes, makeup, jewelry, tattoos and soon. Things doesn't define how beautiful you are unless you actually feel beautiful within yourself.

There are many terrible things in the world. Human history has been colored by war, plaque, famine, sickness & death. But there are also good things, and beauty seems to be the accumulation of those good things of the world in one person. In parts charm, exuberance, and the absence of banality, contrivery, malice and pettiness, Beauty’s essential characteristic is that it offers a respite from the evils of the world. And it generally arrives in a body that inspires reproduction, offering us our only route to, at least, partially escape death. Given that we are both mental and physical beings, true beauty must delight both mental and physical desires.

Meanwhile, clothing provides an important containment of our physicality, and in turn makes the enjoyment of mental delights possible. The way one chooses to clothe oneself is just marketing.

But what of the accidental possessors of great beauty? True beauty is a powerful force that can inspire acts of great destruction. Chairman Mao was fond of saying things like “I wash my penis in the vaginas of women.” What was his real goal while purging his way to supreme power? Was it international socialism? Or did he just want that special someone to “wash” his penis? True beauty is a force for great evil, but also great good, and should be used wisely.

I really like what Grace Joh wrote about the connection to beauty through inner and outward appearance. Beauty projected from inwardly make-up is reflected in outwardly connections and behaviors. Perhaps, it was also best put by Luca Giara when he said that ' appearance and substance are one in the same thing,' not separated, that makes beauty irrevocable.

Call me a pessimist, but in this day and age, I believe outward appearance is nine-tenths of the law. With our incredibly fast-paced, technology-based, myspaced world, you have but a few seconds to make an impression. The “inner” self (whatever that means, do your intestines carry more truth than your face?) is judged only secondly. The second judgment, your personality, is often diluted by ideas of who we think we should be, and that is often based on appearance anyway.

I think true beauty lies in our actions: the way we affect our world and whether or not we leave it better than how we found it. So look beautiful if it gets you through the door; just make sure you act that way once you’re inside.

beauty is a chain, beauty is liberation. turn a prism in your hands and each angle reveals a different aspect of the reflected source, perhaps the metaphor for light translates for the concept of beauty as well. every human being belives in beauty, we've all been struck at least once in our lives whether by a single detail or a full spectre of shattering beauty. yes beauty is shattering: in its power, its superficiality, its profondity, its long lastingness when found in the soul, how quickly it vanishes cell by cell with the passing of time. Perhaps it's time to rephrase the saying "Beauty is only skin deep", because in reality the skin represents the interstice between inner and outer beauty, the physical manifestations of the great divide between the psychology of beauty and the seemingly vain vestiges of physical beauty. But as Brenda Jimenez demonstrates, a vestige such as bra that we adorn on the exterior is proof of how intricate of an issue beauty poses to us women...

How do I judge someone beautiful? What influences my opinion of them?
If I don’t hear them talk, what they are wearing throws of a bit of who they are, but I fixate most on how they are wearing it. By this I mean, how they act, how they move, if they smile for no reason at all, if they look you to the eye. Usually I can't hear people talk, so I have to base my analysis of them on their behavior, to decide if they are beautiful. Some people look gorgeous in anything they wear and are attractive as hell, and it doesn’t mean they are beautiful.

I really like what Victor said about being “intrigued initially by a person’s outward appearance” only to be spurned to delve deeper and get to know what lies beneath.

I believe that we cannot help but initially judge people we encounter by outward appearance. It is immediate and instinctual. Even bees judge flowers by their outward appearance: Bumblebees are attracted to flowers like orchids and peas that have bilateral symmetry, while honeybees go after flowers like daisies and sunflowers whose symmetry is radial. But it is that outward appearance of the flower, and not its fragrance, that initially attracts each bee, titillates it to enter, suckle and pollinate.

I don’t believe that it is wrong to look at people and *consider* their appearance. I think that it is impossible not to. You have to notice if they have long hair or not, if they are wearing purple pants or a black skirt, a ballerina dress, cowboy boots or a perfectly-tailored suit.

But what we need to judge and critique on a daily basis is not appearance itself (something we cannot avoid because we have bodies and eyes), but the meaning we ascribe to appearance; how we interpret what we see on others and ourselves.

These interpretations are definitely influenced by our culture, social status, media, globalization etc. What we need to do is choose *individually* our own meanings and use them as clues and guide posts to knowing others.

I am beginning to think that this system of personal interpretations has something to do with that elusive self that we are always looking to uncover.

When you first meet people, what most influences your opinion of them?

How do you judge somebody beautiful?

To me beauty is something that is ingrained in you from a very early age. It is your values, your ethics, your desire to produce meaningful work and your commitment to your ideas. It is also the mark of an independant mind. Beauty is also an art form, the ability to dodge the punches, hold true to your thoughts, your intentions and to act as dimplomtically as possible with the tools you are given. Beauty is also boundless, it is a struggle, an incorrigible habit and a universal token. We can take beauty and apply its meaning, we can take meaning and call it beautiful!

It's certainly unfortunate, but a reality that we grow up and are conditioned over time to react to people based on things we see, initially. I've always been self conscious - especially during my teen years (like most people) - and didn't have much of a sense of style. I was always disappointed that people didn't get to know me better or could look past what might be boring on the surface, but get to the "chewy center." As a parent, now, I seek out other new social connections with much more depth - certainly still intrigued initially by people's outward appearance - but knowing that the real longevity to relationships and true benefit and growth, comes from finding out what people are like underneath it all. I think, as young-people, we are in a rush and are being judged so quickly by so many. As parents, when we're not as stressed about being with a partner or running the social ladder, we tend to take more time to go deeper and look further.

For me beauty is something that is in constant change, we became more or less beautiful depending on how honest we live life. Permanent beauty for me is not alive, like a decorative object. As long as we try to be honest with ourselves it is going to be beautiful, because it has no intention of being perfect but unique and real and that to me freedom.

Is not easy to be naked.
To take away all your clothes and everything that you pile on yourself (fake behaviors and modes) is difficult.
To work on yourself inside and build something strong enough to make all these accessories un-useful.
To make appearance and substance the one and the same thing; this is a kind of freedom

Only when we are able to look ourselves from an outside view we understand what we are and how we are perceived, and start looking in others what we normally don’t see: the person they really are. It is sad that we have to realize this until we become a wise grandma and not before. So much time and life wouldn’t be wasted on petty things if we could all think like a grandma at a young age.

We can see but are blind, and the blind are the ones who truly see.

Body image is a very complex subject. Particularly for women in society. For centuries, a woman's worth was based on her ability to attract members of the opposite sex and procreate. Although society still struggles with this issue, it appears that women are being judged for their achievements.
