Let’s be honest here. Susan Boyle is never going to be a supermodel. But I have to admit that she does look pretty damn good in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

I can hear you snorting, “Yeah, I’d look good too after a hair and makeup team fussed over me for hours.” And while that’s true, the magazine’s photo shoot with the Hairy Angel gives us some valuable lessons in how to make the most of what we have (and how to disguise some of our flaws, too).

Be the best you can be.
