Sella Malin Does anyone agree with me when I say that I think that Tally was actually prettier as an ugly (in terms of book covers) then when she was a pretty and a special?

Also, has anyone seen the FULL cover of extras? OMG, Aya is SO pretty.

Scott needs to get his uglies and pretties right!!

Edit: Wait, I take what I said back...I get it now. The Uglies are SUPPOSED to be pretty. That's saying that to us, the Rusties, their Ugly is actually normal, or even pretty; but to them, it's actually ugly.

And so, I wonder if in the next few centuries, what we consider pretty right now will be considered ugly?

It's like when Shay and Tally were looking at old Rusty magazines in the Smoke library, and they were saying how ugly the models looked.

Is that what is going to happen to us?

Allie (pearlrose95) | 385 comments I think so. Think about the eighties. Perms and all that stuff we think is stupid now. in like a century, that'll be considered ugly, like how old-fashioned dresses are ugly. In more that that, it'll be TERRIBLE. I agree with what you said sort of- I think she was pretty in both, they just have a different idea of pretty in the that time then we do now.
Thanks for the link! youre right, Aya is sooo pretty!


message 6: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Yeah...stuff in the eighties that they thought were pretty is not now, so that will probably happen to what we think now.

I know! I hope Aya never gets the operation, she doesn't need it!


message 7: by Allie (new)

Allie (pearlrose95) | 385 comments ya, but she does change how she looks, she had purple hair one time or soemthing, remember?


message 8: by Sella (new)

message 18: by Naomi (new)

Naomi (catfanatic) acualy, the 80s is kinda coming back. or am i thinking the 70s? But all the guys w/ long hair...yuck!
Anyway, when Shay and Tally were looking at the mags, Tally thought that some of the models looked prettier, or closer to what the pretties were like in the books.
Allie: I think purple hair sounds fimilair, but i don't remember it specificaly. If she had it though, I don't think ALL her hair was purple. Or was Nana's (is that her name? #1 in popularity...) purple? I don't remember.


message 19: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Maybe she did have a purple streak...


message 20: by Naomi (new)

Naomi (catfanatic) I've read Massie's Summer thing in the Clique series, and she get a purple streak. Maybe thats where it sound fimaliar from. I don't remember!! gaaaa!


message 21: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin I've heard a lot about the Clique series...for some reason, it never really interested me...
