What is Classic Beauty? Your thoughts...

The other week I was chatting to someone who reckoned they knew exactly what "Classic Beauty" was.

In fact they had strong opinions on everything, and if I didn't share the exact same thinking process as they did, I was considered uninteresting and pedantic.


I curiously I asked for some examples, so they span off about half a dosen caucasian female celebrities relevant to the past 20 years.

When I pointed out this fact, they also threw in "Lucy Lu" as a non caucasian example.

This got me wondering:


What is Classic Beauty?


Is there a definition of Classic Beauty? Is it only limited to females? Does an invidiual need to possess certain characteristics and features to be considered Classically Beautiful? And if so, who and where was this determined?

Or is it merely an individual's opinion?
Ie Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?

Actually they've done cross-cultural studies relating to beauty, and more specifically the female and male body proportions. It was found that across culture and time, the relative appearance of people that is deemed as attractive (in societal terms) has not changed much.

So Classic Beauty is probably the same as modern beauty... although the parameters are slightly different in multiples, there still exists the same degree of proportion in terms of appeal.

In the immortal words of Sir Mix-A-Lot:

24-36-24? Nah...

Only if she's 5'1"

Perhaps classic beauty is that which shows without the benefit of cosmetics or surgery.

classic beauty has to do with being natural with appearance and with how they carry themselves. you can usually spot a person with class across the room simply by the way they carry themselves, it doesn't matter on skin color, hair type, eye color, voice.

Seriously dude? Come on... I thought your powers of deduction could have seen the Led Zeppelin.com Logo and put two and two together (no Radiohead jokes please )... it's Bonham... Bonzo. As for his right hand... it's a drum loop video, and I think it's from Moby Dick... so he's just getting into showing off his ambidexterity.

The true Classic Beauty if there ever was one.

Chizip, I think you may have mistaken that with "plastic" beauty.


I don't really have a definition of "classic beauty" but I've heard Candice Bergen and Cybil Shepherd referred to as "classic beauties" quite a few times. Actually, come to think of it, they are the only people to which i've heard that phrase attached.

Maybe it means blonde hair, blue eyed, skinny nosed, long necked, small chinned people.
