Just by hiring top stars, the ad agencies today think they can capture the product market. Secondly, it’s a very personal opinion whether one wants a fair or a dark complexioned partner. We have no right to either highlight it or criticise it for others.

S. Vali: Skin-cancer? Is that why you shouldn’t use these?

I don’t know about you, but I’m proud of my (dark) complexion and as Keira Knightley says, I might as well like the body I’m in if that’s the only body I’ve got.

White people are fixated trying to get a tan.Black people are trying to become white. The most beautiful women in the world (Indian women, my opinion) should stay with what they have got and not try to change. Their natural beauty and all the natural beauty of other races far outways what the media wants people to be.
I’m a white mail from Yorkshire who is nearer 60 than 50 but appreciates good looking natural people. Please don’t be taken in by all the hype.
