In Greek mythology, the words "To the Fairest" or "For the Fairest" were written on the Golden Apple of Discord
, brought to the wedding of Achilles' parents by a goddess who had been left off the guest list for being bad news at parties. There were consequences, including the eventual abduction of one Helen, wife of King Menelaus.
