Lovely Ladies of Days Gone By

Different concepts of beauty reign during different times. Which is lovelier, today's beauty standards, like Angelina Jolie of dramatic lipline, Keira Knightly of the stick-thin arms, or the Lovely Ladies of Days Gone By?

Yes they are very lovely group of ladies. I love nineteenth century painting and photos. You are very right Angelina Jolie is just hideous looking, but Keira Knightly is not an unpretty girl, some people are just thin. Yes the Lovely Ladies of Days Gone By are lovelier.

James Tissot did some beautiful work:

Young Lady with Lilacs

Young Ladies playing Croquet

Young Lady in a Boat
