How the Concept of Beauty Has Been Redefined Over Time

Curiosities
3 months ago

About 30 years ago, slim, long-legged beauties with soft facial features were the only ones to strut down the runway. Since the early 2000s, the appearance of models has begun to change. Now we can see women who have different body shapes, hairstyles and skin color walking at a fashion show. We did a little study and compared how fashion models’ appearances have changed over the past few decades.

It’s obvious that fashion houses have started working with models of different types. However, when celebrities sport designer clothes, their outfits may look a little different on them.

Overall, I'm just a bit, meh, with the evolution that was shown in this post. However, I know that this selection doesn't encompass the entirety of the brands during these periods. I can recall looks that I thought were more provocative and attractive to the general public over the years. Some of these choices are really cool. I'm sure that it's a matter of personal taste and having fun with your clothing choices.
