Pretty People Make More Money?
Pretty is as pretty does? Maybe according to some. But when viewed through the lens of economics, beauty may be your ticket to getting hired, earning more and landing a wealthier spouse.
Or so says Daniel Hamermesh, a professor of economics at the University of Texas at Austin, and author of the new book “Beauty Pays: Why Attractive People Are More Successful.”
According to his calculations, a good-looking person will earn, on average, $230,000 more over the course of a lifetime than someone who is perceived as less attractive.
We didn’t like the sound of this, so we decided to speak with Hamermesh about his controversial stance. We sat down with him to discuss why being unattractive hurts men more than women at work, and the one factor that will influence what you earn even more than beauty.
TheStylEdit.com differs from every other Fashion blog because not only does it cover the looks, styles, models, stores, beauty, photographers & designers that all embody this thing we call Fashion but TheStylEdit.comtells the story behind everything that is Fashion. While Fashion is often times measured by its end product, the often forgotten story behind such is just as important.
TheStylEdit.combrings the story to the runway and gives life to the journey's taken behind the curtain. TheStylEdit.com is a Fashion blog with a style all its own and Mia Anita: Fashion's Story Teller designing it all the way.

“I think I confuse people. In this country, there is a bias against people who have a certain look or style. I have fought this all of my life. People only see this package, and it’s a tall and vocal package. So people think, Wait a minute, you can’t be this stylish and intelligent, too. I take people out of their comfort zone." - Desiree Rogers
