A Summary Of 100 Years Of Men's Beauty

-

Beauty perception evolves and changes over time. This change has a lot to do with cultural interaction, fashion, music; shortly, everything. You probably remember reading and hearing that plus size women were thought to be more beautiful than skinny ones in the past. Times change and so do we and our perceptions.. In order to demonstrate this more clearly and concretely, a video summarizing the style change of American men was made (starring 'the yummy dude'). Scroll down to see what people found "handsome" how it has changed.

1910s

Well, we can't possibly remember this time; however, considering the moves that this gorgeous dude is making, it kinda looks like wrestlers of old times.

1920s

This one doesn't look like it contributed anything to male fashion or history. I think we could have survived without this one just as easily. (But the dude still looks good, doesn't he?)

1930s

This the exact look that Clark Gable pioneered. During these times, the eyes were much more important.

1940s

You might remember this look from musical movies. The hot guy in a sailor's uniform was quite hip back then.

1950s

The awesome looks of James Dean not only stole all women's hearts, but also affected men's fashion. It looks pretty cool, doesn't it?

1960s

It wouldn't be wrong to associate this period of time with the emergence of hippies, who shaped the world. We can see that the change has slowly started!

1970s

These were the years when hippies were fighting to take over the world: environmental awareness, love and peace... I guess they were too busy talking about these to get a hair cut. (And I have absolutely no problem with it.)

1980s

This was the time when everybody was dancing to "Cheri Cheri Lady." The brilliantine makes it more bad-ass.

1990s

This isn't the 'real' metal-head, but who cares? Everybody listened to metal in the 90's at least once.

2000s

Does this look also remind you of Ricky Martin? So it looks like this trend originated in and spread from the USA.

And 2010...

This seems to be the most natural one when you look at it all. However, to make the best decision, you will have to look at it after 10 years, because beauty perception is just like a hyper kid that can't stay still for long.
