Beauty From Around The Globe

What makes a person beautiful? The answer often depends on where you’re at. One of the most wonderful aspects of the wild diversity of culture we humans share on this planet is our incredibly diverse standards of beauty. From nation to nation, coast to coast, we humans tend to hold extremely different values when it comes to attraction, even beyond our distinctively different styles of dress.

That being said, we think that a case can be made for universally appreciable beauty. We believe that, with a little cultural understanding and an open mind, anyone can stand in awe of the apex of human visual appeal from any corner of the globe. To make our case, we present the images below, sharing scores of gorgeous women from dozens of countries across the Earth.

These images were taken by Mihaela Noroc, who traveled the world for a project called “The Atlas of Beauty,” a collection of portraits of women proving that beauty is indeed everywhere, even beyond the eye of the beholder. “It’s not a matter of cosmetics, money, race, or social status,” she says, “but more about being yourself. Global trends make us look and behave the same, but we are all beautiful because we are different.”

1. Maramures, Romania

Maramures, Romania

Bright colors spike the traditional dress of a woman in this European nation. Her face merely hints at a smile, but it’s enough. Romania is one of the most photographed countries visited for the Atlas of Beauty series, so we’ll be seeing more of it.

2. Shiraz, Iran

Shiraz, Iran

Iran is a surprisingly open country, despite what many Westerners believe. Women, of course, are not forced to cover up with conservative religious wardrobe, as this beauty proves. We encourage anyone reading this to look more into the great history and current status of Iran.
