3000 Años de Estándares de Belleza Femenina en un vídeo de 3 minutos
3000 Thousand years of Women’s beauty standards in a 3 minutes video
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but that eye can see things very differently depending on where (and when) it is. Buzzfeed’s video staff explored this idea by creating a video with live models showing us how the concept of an ideal woman’s body type has changed throughout history.
We all probably have some idea of how women from all of the different historical periods in the video dressed, but the idea that there were different ideal body types may not have occurred to many of us. The uniform white bathing suits that all of the models in the video are wearing help accentuate the differences between their bodies, doing away with other potential historical elements that we might have focused on otherwise like clothing or jewelry.
It all just goes to show that there’s no one right way to interpret feminine beauty. Which historical period do you think “got it right?”
