You can keep your Rihannas and your Scarletts. They may top the beauty lists and grace the magazine covers, but they lack that certain something. Yes, they are gorgeous on the surface, but where is that inner spark that captures a man’s heart and imagination? They’ve never felt the pain of crying out for notice only to have their caterwauls fall on deaf ears. The standard beauty queen has everything come her way.

Who will keep you warm, Janine Melnitz?
