About Speaking of Beauty

Actress, Writer, and Beauty Spokesperson, Holly Fulger, (ELLEN, thirtysomething, ANYTHING BUT LOVE and many more), is on a personal mission with her new show, Speaking Of Beauty with Holly Fulger; to help women discover their inner beauty and feel more beautiful and sexy at every age.

“We don’t talk enough about beauty to one another and it’s now starting to come out. The more we all talk, the easier it will become,” says Holly. “The older I become, the more I see that physical beauty is lovely to look at, but ultimately meaningless. Beauty is a reflection of who we are. It is, quite simply, our soul reflected outwardly.”

As she interviews some of her favorite role models and “everyday heroes” of all races, ages and backgrounds, each woman discusses their personal vision of beauty, the negative effects of media’s “ideal woman”, and how these perceptions influence their lives and their power as women. Holly takes a profound look at both the positive and negative aspects of being a woman and presents a platform for resolving the paradox of being “beautiful” and the power of being yourself.
