To give a bit of background…in my recent “studies” of female beauty, I thought it would be interesting to ask a few kids what they thought. I interviewed a handful of first graders, roughly 6 or 7 years old, and asked them questions a bit paraphrased from the adult version interview. I also asked them to draw a picture of what a beautiful woman would look like. The next 5 interviews are part of this “mini-series”. Enjoy!

What do you think a beautiful or pretty lady looks like?

I don’t know.

Well, what do you think makes a lady look nice?

To dress up.

What kind of clothes would she be wearing?

A dress.

What color would it be?

Yellow.

So if somebody wore a yellow dress, she would look pretty?

Yes.

Would there be anything else?

Just that.

Can you think of one beautiful or pretty lady?

My mom.

Why?

Because she dresses up pretty.

Does she have a yellow dress?

No.

But you said she needed a yellow dress to be pretty.

She used to.

What do you think looks nice for you?

My white shirt that says Ecko and my smile.
