In my opinion, when you look at something like a work of art say, or a picture of a scene, you look for visual cues that instill a certain emotion, memory or thought. In our culture, the need to feel pretty is to instill in other people a sense of worth, a sense of acceptance by, at the same time, standing out. It's for the same reason boys feel the need to be masculine. Many societies have always upheld the notion that beauty is power. I think this can be positive and negative. When you feel pretty because you've grown into yourself, become the truly perfect and unperfect person you are, that is powerful in a positive way. On the other hand, beauty can be bestowed on those who realize it in the shallowest sense.

It's not to show off (at least not for me), it's for self-confidence~ which is what you need to survive in this world.

Well, I wasn't meaning it that way, dear, just how some girls feel shy and how some don't feel good about themselves, but I suppose that works too.

looking pretty isnt just putting make up on and fitting in roll
looking pretty for a girl is everything because looks are all that we usually can boast about. a good personality too, yea.
but i think looking pretty nowadays means fitting in with the 'in' crowd and denying your own wishes.
There are a lot of forms of 'pretty' depending on the country and time. eyes
girls are more likely to be bullied because of their looks so like the others say, it's to be noticed, to be popular and what's wrong with wanting to be pretty for your crush/boyfriend? smile wink grin
Though, one thing I strongly believe in:
I don't dress up and make myself all fluffy for my boyfriend or crush. I do it to outdress other girls laugh dead

i suppose "pretty" differs for people/countries/cultures but however it might be considered i guess it's because it's in our blood confused biggrin
