So change the law. Make it illegal to fire someone who is too cute or far too lovely. Who decides who is too pretty or not pretty enough?

Perhaps a general law that says nobody can be fired for their looks, period. Does the new law include tattoos on the face or a bone through the nose? I can well imagine a tattoo covered person with a bone through his or her nose will be listened to in the boardrooms of Apple or GE.

I think companies should be allowed to fire you, hire you or not hire you for any reason, including gender, religion and race.

I am sure there are companies that would prefer to not hire black people. I say let them have their way and my guess is the public will be outraged, the company will suffer and we won't need to go to court.
