That jaw! Those eyes! That hair! If the $10 bill is anything to go by, Alexander Hamilton was one of our handsomest Founding Fathers. But Hamilton’s had a bit of help over the years from artists at the Bureau of Engraving & Printing – resulting in a “Hollywoodized” Hamilton, as biographer Ron Chernow labeled it. In 2010, Newsweek even asked a plastic surgeon to give his assessment of the rather substantial changes in Hamilton’s portrait from the 1914 version (at left), to the redesign in 2000 (center), and the updated 2005 $10 bill (at right). Hotness definitely INCREASING!

In the Ideal to Real TODAY/AOL Body Image survey, teenage girls revealed something unexpected: 65 percent said seeing their selfies on social media actually boosts their confidence…
The TODAY/AOL findings findings echo emerging social science on the impact of social media on self-presentation and self-image. Selfies seem inconsequential or goofy, but they can actually be incredibly important to teenagers, because they give teens a way to control the image of themselves that they’re showing to the world, experts say.
'It’s the first time you get to be the photographer and the subject of the photograph,' says Pamela Rutledge, director of the Media Psychology Research Center, who has written extensively about this subject, particularly as it applies to teenagers and/or Millennials. 'Even though that seems very simple, that’s an extraordinary shift, historically. And control makes people believe in themselves.'
The place in which I’ll fit will not exist until I make it.
