  • Classic, but some of the classic beauties were just make up. I don't get the hype about some actresses, they only look pretty because they were full of makeup. Some were beautiful though.

  • I dont think your modern beauty pics are accurately representative of what modern day beauty is. I still prefer classic, but I think you are very obviously biased based on the photos used.

      The first picture is of the popular beauty queens of the past, and the modern day picture is of the women who are famous and everything modern day beauty standards are about lip fillers, extension, ass implants, botched botox, etc.. Simplicity is not what is called of female celebrities today and that's a fact.

    • 3d

      I am pretty up to date on pop culture and I didn't recognize 2 of the people in your modern day pic. Those pictures each look like they're 5-7 years old, too. Style has evolved a decent bit since then.

    • 3d

      Modern is not simple, but it also isn't botched. Less than 10 years ago, it definitely was, but people are getting smarter about it now. They lean more toward subtle changes to facial structure rather than dramatic changes. I would try sticking to pictures from 2017-present

  • The standards didn't change. It is still diamond face shape, almond shaped eyes and symmetry. If a girl has this features will be considered as beautiful even if she doesn't follow the trends, but if she doesn't have these she won't be considered as beautiful whatever makeup she has.

  • Classic beauty was more real. Or at least I see it as having been more genuine and not focusing on one body part like large lips or a big round butt. Also it was a different time and era and the personalities were more refined and classic as well. That also translated into the beauty of those women.

  • not an accurate representation of modern day beauty at all. yet MANY have told me i'm the most beautiful girl they've ever seen because I'm natural, don't wear a lot of makeup and still look attractive which is so rare to find these days. i hate the fake duck lipped, orange oompa loompa face trend going on right now.

  • Don't really know how you can pick modern seeing those pictures, lol, but generally with a less extreme example of modern beauty, old fashioned still rates higher in my book. It was more natural, and people found beauty in their uniqueness. Now it seems that we have accepted a 'herd' version of beauty in society, and people will pay for more and more outlandish surgeries to attain that ideal.

      There were tons of issues with the past but the aesthetic wasn't one.

  • I love how choose you modern beauty to be 3 women with so much botox done you'll need to get a toxicology report done every time you kiss them and women like Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, Priyanka Chopra, Emma Watson, Kat Dennings, or Rihanna for example.

  • Yeah these are both very extreme examples. Back then women did not look like that, just a very select few did. And women today don't all have plastic running through their bodies. I prefer today's standards, because back then there was a lot of restrictions on what woman can and cannot wear/do with their hair/makeup. Today is a lot more open, and people get to express themselves.

  • Well the beauty standards today are all sexualized based on the ideals of models and the porn industry, and frankly the average person is not like that. Look at any model on IG, it's always huge fake boobs, big ass, minimal clothes, rock hard abs, etc

  • Modern day standards don't even come close to how glamorous the earlier eras were. This trend of using botox is destroying women's faces and makes everyone look the same. A lot of the classic beauties actually had uniqueness to them.

    One of my favourites from the 1940's, Gene Tierney

    Celebrities today don't even come close to how beautiful and classy as she was. The only one that I can think of is Anna Kendrick.

  • That's difficult to say since beauty fashion has had countless of different periods of standards and looks. But I can safely say that the example above on modern beauty is ugly as heck.

  • neither. i prefer natural beauty.

    i mean classic beauty meant "perm wave and a mask of makeup".
    Modern beauty means a ton of makeup, silicone and botox.

    neither of those are appealing.

  • i think that the "modern beauty" is not necessarily the perception or even the standard for all. i think even the past standard of beauty is not a one size fits all sort of thing.

    i just don't really feel like we can measure the most famous movie stars of yesteryear and call that the "standard" vs a bunch of reality and pornstars and call them the "standard" of beauty.

    it seems like a better barometer would be to look at the most famous movie/tv stars of today compared to the past...

    all that said just answering your question certainly the women in option A are far more beautiful and sexy than option B

  • What's classic beauty about? tiny eyebrows and tiny wrist... bad eyeliner, ridiculous hair. The trends back were not as flexible as they are now. Reading these responses everyone says classic.. but seems like everyone on here is very judgmental... just wants to be "original" or different.
    Let's be honest if you took two women one dolled up like in old fashion look and modern day, who do you think people will have a softer eyes for? Not the pencil thin girl with a over sprayed bob... people will laugh, not admire her. They're gonna like the girl with long balayage hair that's got a thick body.
    The people says things but their actions do not match up.

      Wrong. I dress like the 1940s a lot and so do girls that I know personally. There's a subculture for it and we admire it and enjoy participating in it. Just because you have a dislike for the dolled up classiness of bygone days doesn't mean everyone is lying about their interest in it.

      @InTimoreDei my bad I didn't include weirdos sorry but you dont count in my general idea of everyone

    • 1d

      Where did you get the idea that pencil thin was trendy back then? Most of these actresses such as Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor (on the first pic) were actually naturally curvy. If anything, standards back then were more flexible because you didn't have to squat at the gym and lift weights like an athlete to be considered good-looking. Or get fillers, liposuction, contouring etc.

      by the way balayage is damaging to your hair

      I do agree about tiny waists though (back then women used corsets, which are unhealthy)

  • People are ignorant of the past. I prefer modern women.
