African American Women, confidence

Allure magazine polled 2,000 men and women across the country for their American Beauty Survey to find out what they think is beautiful these days. Not surprisingly, the survey revealed that African-American women have "killer confidence."

"When asked about their personal attractiveness, African-American women were three times as likely as Caucasian women to rate themselves at the hot end of the spectrum," the poll result states.

The magazine also revealed that women are on the fence about their curves. Seventy-three percent say that a curvier body is more appealing now than it has been in the past decade, but 85 percent still wanted to tone down their hips.
