I n American culture today, celebrities are often revered as icons of beauty. A celebrity should be understood as someone who is famous during his or her own lifetime, often famous for being famous. Most contemporary celebrities achieve their fame through acting, singing, modeling careers, or being a wealthy socialite. Moreover, celebrities' bodies have, for over a century, set the tone for the nation in terms of what is in vogue. Celebrities, by definition, are in the public eye and, therefore, can act as spokespeople for various diets and body images, often in relation to their own appearance. While many celebrities advocate svelte bodies, others champion "curvy" bodies as being healthy, natural, and beautiful. Most often, a celebrity uses his or her own body as a billboard of sorts to communicate to the public their personal ideals of beauty.
