What Do We Find Attractive?

Reblog this post if you find the ladies of long ago to still be beautiful in our modern 21st century!

In our era where thigh-high splits in skirts and navel-length necklines in dresses dominate the couture of what seems like nearly every female celebrity—not to mention many instances of very heavy makeup—one often has to wonder how our standards of the beauty ideal have changed. A century and more ago, Charles Dana Gibson developed what was considered for that era, the Ideal Woman. She had a sweet and wholesome look, and one of her biggest extravagancies was her pompadour hairdo, commonly referred to afterward as the “Gibson Girl” look.

A woman—if she wanted to retain the title of a true lady—would be dressed most respectably always, and if she dared to show her ankles among the company of men, oh, she was a hussy! When we realize what was considered proper in terms of dress in the Edwardian era (and what could really be inexplicably daring!), one often has to wonder how some vintage photos we look at now seemed in their heyday. By looking at this image below, the question that comes to mind is, Was Camille Clifford considered to appear “loose”? Although her gown was generous in length, the cut of her neckline seems to me to be a bit of an eyebrow-raiser in its day.

If Miss Clifford lived now and appeared on the red carpet, would she even be noticed for this? I’d say not at all! She would look exceptionally modest and would instead likely earn either high accolades of being most stylish (as I would tell her!) or be censured for being old-fashioned! It really is incredible how fashions change.
   When we are bombarded with more and more bold fashions and daring hair colors, one has to wonder if the glamour of long ago can last today.
   If you find such luminaries as Camille Clifford and Evelyn Nesbit (to name just a few; I’ve picture more well-known faces below), let me know by reblogging this post!

  • Fred: *finger guns* hey, cool beans, how are you?
  • 
Hermione: *whispers* he’s so cool.
  • Ginny: you have such low standards.

She’s flawless in an imperfect kind. Her carefreeness and the way she is real is a breath of fresh air in this suffocating world of fake people. She might think too much, and feel to much, but after all she’s human and one who makes the ground on which she walks, happy. She has dreams which may seem unachievable and standards matching the height of her heels, but her demeanor is down to earth and simple. Her mind is a complicate and intricately woven pattern of strings, constantly changing but there’s a feeling of home when you’re with her. She might not be the prettiest, cutest or smartest girl you’ve met, but atleast she doesn’t pretend to be too. Overall that’s how I’d describe the girl who swept me off my feet, not with her perfection but her little imperfections.
