Gibson Girl This is what the ideal of female beauty was from about 1895 to 1915. It was the Gibson Girl look--named after artist Charles Dana Gibson. His drawings often illustrated magazine stories of the era. They were likely the first type of mass media to influence the perception of what feminine beauty is. The stereotypical Gibson Girl was tall, had an extreme hourglass figure, with her hair (preferably curly) piled atop her head in a bouffant, pompadour, or chignon style. This photo is of stage actress Camille Clifford who epitomized the Gibson Girl look.

This is very accurate of that time period. I have photos of my grandmothers and great grandmothers, and they favor this style to a T.

Of course I have to add that also at that time, women wore whalebone corsets that pulled them in to give them that hourglass figure.

The contrast between how a typical American woman dressed in 1905 compared to 1925 is startling.
