A modern Gibson Girl hairstyle. Gibson Girls were considered the "ideal women" of the early 1900's and were characterized by their extravagant hairstyles and tiny waistlines. I would just like to say that this hairstyle is sick. It's elegant, dramatic, and just plain fierce.
"The Gibson Girl" by Charles Dana Gibson -He was an American graphic artist, best known for his creation of the "Gibson Girl", an iconic representation of the beautiful and independent American woman at the turn of the 20th Century.
Camille Clifford~the original "Gibson Girl." A Gibson Girl was the personification of the feminine ideal of beauty portrayed by the satirical pen-and-ink illustrations of illustrator Charles Dana Gibson
The early 1900s Gibson Girl was the first national beauty standard for American women. Her neck was thin and her hair piled high upon her head in the contemporary bouffant, pompadour, and chignon ("waterfall of curls") fashions. The statuesque, narrow-waisted ideal feminine figure was portrayed as being at ease and stylish. She was a member of upper class society, always perfectly dressed in the latest fashionable attire appropriate for the place and time of day.
