Which groups don't spend much time on their appearance? Straight Men and Gay Women. Who are they trying to attract? Women.
This suggests that there is something biological in men that makes them most concerned with physical attraction, and something biological that makes women most concerned with personality, character, wealth, etc.
The only "evidence" I see here is a bunch of unsubstantiated stereotypes.
What "suggests" that any of this is biological? None of this is biological. If there's truth in any of these assertions, it's conditioning. Not every society expects or has expected men to be breadwinners. Additionally, at many times in history, men were far and away the more dressed-up, cosmeticized sex -- arguably through most of history.
