The beauty of the 18th century

lanadelrey25

Ah yes, the age of guillotines and powdered wigs! There probably wasn't much beauty in the political world or the nations relationships, but this era produced some of the most delicate and beautiful fashions and art. I am not near as passionate about the 18th century as I am the 19th and early 20th, but I have love for the beauty of all era's. We'll be focusing on France and England because they were the founders of the fashions and art I will be listing below.

That hair:

Yes, they had bugs and in some extreme cases even small rodents, but it looked good!.....

The ornate hair of the prominent women was, you have to admit, quite stunning.

The clothes, oh how splendid! :

Just like the Edwardian period, they were obsessed with tiny, dainty feet.

The jewelry:

Down below is one of Marie Antoinette's necklaces, this piece of jewelry caused quite the controversy in her time and it involved sex, lies, affairs and scandal galore. Definitely a contributing factor to her death at the guillotine.

In France during the French revolution , it became fashionable for the women to wear a red ribbon choker around their necks to symbolize their protest against the guillotine and pay homage to the ones who lost their life to it.

And my personal favorite titled "Love Letters"

Look how loving they are! It looks so genuine and adoring it brings tears to my eyes. The way he gazes so lovingly and romantically at his lady...

  • Omg , this resonated with my soul - sense of familiarity. Welcome to the family of kindred spirits/ possibly soul family. Definitely a resemblance of that era and spiritual connection. Past lives remember past lives. This is truly beautiful 😍
    • Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed it! <3

    Wow! I appreciate how much time you spent making this post, I can tell it took a long time to do. I have always loved the fashion of this era... I never knew that the women wore red ribbons around their neck that is so damn cool!

    I only liked the jewelry. Apart from that this wouldn't be a good time for me to be alive unless I was white.
    • It wouldn't have been a good time for really anybody, french royalty were being beheaded left and right by the English and women were being burned alive for being witches. You didn't even like the dresses?

    • menina

      Yes, I know that. But being a slave wouldn't be good either.
      The only dress I liked was the first one. They look uncomfortable and too big for me.

    • I bet they were itchy as hell

    The Age of Enlightenment. Plus I loved Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette.

    There was certainly a beauty about it. But I have to agree that the 19th and turn of the 20th century probably had the best fashion. However I do like 18th century Revolutionary American fashion.

    You again? This site is so cliquey
    • What do you mean by "you again" ?

    • Yeah, you literally made 0 sense

      Yeah, this isn’t for anyone specific, literally anyone can appreciate the beauty of fashions from another time period lmao

    i really only like the dresses and jewelry. i don’t think anyone would actually want to live during that time period.
