The Evolution Of Beauty Over The Last Century

 

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but there is no point in trying to dismiss society’s concept of the ‘perfect woman’. In the last 100 years the body of the perfect woman has taken on all different body shapes and forms.

For example in 1910 the ‘Gibson Girls’ was the personification of the feminine ideal of beauty which was portrayed by illustrator Charles Dana Gibson. This ideal woman would be tall and slender yet have ample breasts, hips and buttocks. She would also have a over exaggerated ‘S’ curve torso shape which was achieved by wearing a tight corset.

The Flapper

However fast forward just 10 years and we see quite the opposite. The exaggerated curves have all but gone and replaced with a small bust and hips. The sex appeal of this look had migrated from the chest down to legs with many garments of the time having a shorter knee-length hemline.
