Do You Have a "Good" Side?

Do You Have a "Good" Side?


Long before the days of rampant rhinoplasty, Hollywood actresses used to demand that they be photographed only from certain angles. Even today, some stars, like Dita Von Teese, seem to favor one side over the other. That's because most people don't have perfectly symmetrical faces, and pictures often highlight facial quirks that you wouldn't notice in person. (You'd never pick up on my crooked nose in person, but in photos, I might as well be Gonzo the Great.) Do you favor one side or the other, or is it not a big deal to you?

I prefer my right side, but I photograph with both, although my right sided pictures look better.

My right eye doesn't open as wide as my left so my left side looks more awake! That said, I have been working on my right eye (lid) and am more aware to keep it open so it doesn't droop. Most girls would just have botox but with a little effort I think it looks almost as good as my "good" eye! (freaky, I know).

Left side, but I'll do the right if I must. I think my nose looks better from the left.
