One major theme in Oscar Wilde’s 1890 Picture of Dorian Gray is the idea of aestheticism as being mostly an abstract concept whose only intention it is to disillusion rather than to dignify the concept of beauty. On the other hand, Ancient Greek philosophers felt that aesthetically appealing objects were beautiful in and of themselves. Then, which camp should be chosen? Are appearances deceptive or are they a reflection of what we truly are? Some were clearly opinionated when the British, in 1770, proposed a law to the Parliament granting the right to annul a marriage if the bride used cosmetics prior to her wedding day. A little radical in my opinion… But don’t fret: ladies of 2012 simply color themselves in! [Camille Jaganathen]
