It's not illegal to "discriminate" people on their appearance. Are you saying people who show up to an interview looking like a homeless person should be considered purely on their resume? Or people with tattoos all over their face? It's actually completely understandable and a responsible practice that a hiring company uses appearance as a gauge for potential employees. It works the other way around too, a tattoo parlor may not want an employee who doesn't have a single tattoo. It all depends on what job you are going for. Dress, look, and act the part.

at my old job they hired you not only for your resume but also for your apperance. i worked at a grocery store and they only hired 1. people qualified and 2. friendly looking people. you wouldnt want an someone who looks like an axe murderer or a hooker bagging your apples right?

Apparently it is not illegal as such but is dangerous because the employer must be careful they aren't discriminating because of a protected category like race, age or disability or sex.
