How Shall Beauty Save the World?

Check out this striking portrait of gorgeous model Anna Marie Braun for Beauty Shall Save the World, wearing Oscar de la Renta in a demolished rain forest. The dichotomy of such rare beauty in an ugly world is a powerful one.

In the midst of today’s global chaos, we must look to beauty to save us. Quite simply, it is all we have.

That’s what Russian writer & philosopher Fyodor Dostoevsky meant when he made the famous statement, “Beauty shall save the world,” and therein lies our own philosophy.

Our fashion, beauty and lifestyle website reports on beauty in all forms, from fine gourmet chocolates to technology, beauty products, lingerie, fragrance and decor from around the world.

Beauty Shall Save the World would like to thank Bill Delzell of Blue Sky Studios in San Francisco and Ellisa Worley of City Model Management, San Francisco.

So how do you think beauty shall save the world? We invite your comments.
