“Wrong Century” by Tomas Kucerovsky



I know I have rebloged this before, but I just love it so much!

the look of wistfulness on her face just punches me straight in the heart

This is basically the whole purpose of this blog in a nutshell. And not even jsut for larger ladies, but for everyone who’s ever wondered if they’d be considered beautiful in another time/place.

Beauty from the victorian era to the 1930’s

Really interesting video, and the lady talking is marvellous! It’s odd to think that in the space of about 40 years the beauty ideal went from pale as could be, without a scrap of makeup…to bright red lipstick being all the rage!

Elizabeth Alexeievna was distinguished by a soft, melodious voice, and a beautiful oval face, with delicate features, a Greek profile, large almond-shaped blue eyes and curly ash blond hair, which she usually left floating on her shoulders. With an elegant figure, regal carriage and a beautiful angelic face, she was regarded by contemporaries as one of the most beautiful women in Europe and probably the most beautiful consort at that time.
