It’s 2017 and everyone is aware of the fact that health, confidence and well-being of person matter more than their appearance. However, if you ask people what the “perfect body” of a man looks like, you will get a variety of answers. Some may say that they like men with a lean body while some may prefer men who are a bit on a chubbier side. It is seen that people from different countries have different perceptions of the perfect body.
In order to battle the same issue, Superdrug Online Doctor initiated a unique project last year. They called it “Perceptions of Perfection” which showcased what people in 18 countries think ideal woman body looks like. Since this project was a huge hit, they decided to make a series for men too.
They asked 19 designers from different countries to photoshop a picture of a guy. This guy was one of their photographers from New York who graciously gave his self-portrait. All the designers, 11 women and 8 men produced their own versions of how attractive men in their country look.
According to them, the perspective of how ideal body looks is not at all limited to a certain gender. With a variety of cultures from all over the world, men may feel even more pressure to look stronger, slimmer or more muscular. Their mission is to change people’s perspective about body images and to prioritize health and fitness over appearance. They also want to promote body confidence all over the world.
Since they wanted to attain a true view of the male attractive standards, they hired 19 designers and gave them certain minimal details. All the designers made some changes in the image. Some changes were subtle and some of them were so intense that it was difficult to believe that each of them was the same person. His skin colour, physique and hair were transformed to a great extent.
It is very common notion that real men come in all shapes and sizes and span various skin tones and facial features. Well, this man was no exception to the notion too. Watch this man evolve and change into the perfect body based on every culture’s beauty standard and ethnic norms.
