Is beauty really is in the eye of the beholder?

So on my way back to Hatfield this afternoon, there was a young lady on the train reading a novel titled ' Is beauty really in the eye of the beholder'?.

Is beauty really and truly in the eye of the beholder'? For a split second i was very intrigued by this question I tried to beat my way around in thought and not sound to harsh, i turned to my freind and asked her the question, my freind answered 'as difficult as this may be and shallow as it may sound, i beg to differ, im afraid that nothing, can make the Elephant Man attractive'

Of course if your talking about physical beauty we all have a standard. But our standards are very different, like some people just love fat people, skinny, short, tall and other just love querky looks like a wierd shaped mouth or weird looking eyes so you might as well say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I belive that Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, one man's meat is another man's poison, you cannot use extremes to prove the point, our perceptions vary, that is how the saying 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' came to be, A mother can give birth to the ugliest baby alive and still believe without a doubt that her baby is the most beautiful baby ever created. This proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

although society has set a certain standard to measure beauty - based on physical features- I still believe it lies in the eye of the beholder.
Yes, one cannot deny a person's physical beauty, but the whole package count. So may people have the most beautiful faces or bodies, but as soon as you discover that there is no personality, it spoils everything.
