The Beautiful Women of Buenos Aires

Some Philosophizing About Beauty in the Metro of Buenos Aires, Argentina
Beauty is indeed relative and is truly in the eye of the beholder. It is said that Argentina, specifically Buenos Aires, has the most beautiful women in the world. Surely this big reputation creates a temptation to perfection. Argentina is also known for its relatively large number of cosmetic surgery. Is this just a coincidence? I guess it must be hard to resist. Even the president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, is not immune to this temptation. She is always dressed up and well-known for her fashion expenses.
What do you think is beauty a blessing or a curse?

I think beauty is a blessing - not everyone has! This young woman is a beauty! I challenge you to take a photo for your blog of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner!

From what I see (especially this woman in the middle of the photo) Argentina's reputation re: beautiful women is well-deserved.

Beauty can be either a blessing or a curse. By itself it is neither, it just is. How one handles it determines how it turns out.

Beauty is usually confused with youth, true beauty defies time. Being a slave to beauty can be a curse because beauty alone is an empty vessel. There has to be character and soul for beauty to be transcendent.

'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'

Beauty come in different forms but by physical standards, many might agree that there are a lot of beautiful women in Argentina though I have never been to this place and have only read about it.
