Perfection?

Flower 2, detail

I came across a quote in an article in April’s Vogue a few weeks ago that struck me so much I actually underlined it right in the magazine, something I do not have a tendency to do. However, it then managed to escape me until a few moments ago when I came across it once more while flipping through the pages. Too bad I hadn’t had it when writing my Beautiful Monsters final thesis paper…seems quite fitting.

“It’s as if knowing that something’s not quite right about a look – not in the traditional sense, anyway – is where the appeal lies. Perfection feels too ordinary a goal unless you change the definition.” – Emily Holt
