What most of us look at is the body, but God looks at the inside. This verse is about the characteristic of a virtuous woman.

The kind of power that God has given to a woman is unimaginable. The power to create, to nurture, to make things work or not to work, and the power to take control of any situation. It is good to be a woman. It is a privilege to be a woman.

It is not a sin to beautify the body, but it is not okay to focus on that alone. God is interested in the mind, and fearing Him us the right thing to do.
