Over the past decade, a whole new classification of beauty has emerged. Its hallmark is ethnic diversity. Almost by definition, global beauty implies exotic, thoroughly individual characteristics (which makes defining it nearly impossible).
What is fascinating to my eye is the exotic mix of traits. I never am able to identify what a woman is exactly other than beautiful. I often ask models where their families came from, just to know. The answers are a testament to how very small our world has become: German, Asian, and African-American; or Irish, Native American, and Italian; or Swedish and Central African. Despite their current acclaim on the modeling circuit today, these global beauties have in the past been left out. They are not white, not black, not Hispanic, and not Asian. They are perfectly unique.
