While most of society defines a good-looking woman by the same boring and bland characteristics, "biz" actually chooses to think for himself, and "biz" likes a woman who doesn't have cookie-cutter society-defined looks.
There's nothing special about most women who are models or are considered good looking. They all have the same essential body type and the same facial features. Sure, they're not ugly by any means, but I find it amazing how many people think they are incredibly attractive when they have "dime a dozen" looks. You just don't realize it because you're told they're supremely attractive, both by societal pressures and sometimes explicitly, and you can't see beyond it.
When I was in college I parked cars at a trendy hotel. One day a cab pulled up and a young woman got out. She was wearing jeans, a plain tank top, had no make-up on, and her hair in a pony tail. The entire place froze. Men, literally in mid-sentence, stopped and watched her walk through the lobby and up to the front desk to check in. She was stunning and no one had any idea who she was.
After she went up to her room, a bunch of us crowded around the concierge desk while he looked up her name in the hotel system and googled her. It was Petra Nemcova.
You're right, for the most part, supermodels look like any other attractive woman you'd see in a bar on a Saturday night or laying out by the pool in Vegas. But there are tiny differences in symmetry that make the supermodels more attractive. You're free to be attracted to anyone you want but don't pretend that supermodel looks are a dime a dozen, because they aren't.
