I believe the most beautiful woman is the one who revels in the full expression of who she is.
When we come into contact with a woman so unapologetically present, it's impossible to pull eyes away. She is mesmerizing, irresistible.
When I think of the dancers who have most indelibly captured my attention and admiration - it wasn't the fancy moves they did, or their sparking costumes. It didn't matter if she was a beginner, rocking the 3 moves she knew, or a master performer, deftly articulating intricate moves across the floor.
What captures is her utter and total presence. The fullness of her expression. Grounded, present. Frankly and wildly alive.
What struck me about these dancers was that - not that the audience was unimportant; she didn't scoff at or shun us - but: we were irrelevant.
Although it is a privilege to witness a woman revel in her moment, she isn't doing it for you. She's doing it for herself.
That for me is beauty.

Love your scars.
