Vintage Portraits of Beauty circa 1930s.

National+Types+of+Beauty%2C+1930s+%281%29National types of beauty was a series of real photo cigarette cards distributed in the 1930s.
Some of the women portrayed were well-known actresses in their country, such as Anna May Wong from China, Frances Doble from Canada and Greta Nissen from Sweden.
The photographers were unidentified but the portraits would have been taken by major studios of the time.
Tellingly, no black women were represented but this may have more to do with their lack of recognition as actors in America and Europe than any deliberate exclusion on the part of the cigarette company.

The Beautiful and Charismatic Lilli Langtry, famous English Actress.

Lillie Langtry was beautiful, smart, had wit and passion all  in one mesmerizing package.
Langtry was a stage actress persuaded to go into the acting business by famed writer and poet Oscar Wilde.
As her popularity grew, more people started to gravitate towards Langtry, because of her charisma and undeniable beauty.
Whenever she entered the room at a party, all eyes were on her.
Without even asking for permission, people were drawing and painting portraits of Langtry, which quickly became postcard favourites.
But it took more than just looks for Langtry to catch the eye of Albert Edward, the Prince of Wales and later King of the United Kingdom.
Around 1877, Langtry became the semi-official mistress of the Prince because, back then, those sorts of things happened.
She wasn’t just arm-candy, of course, and often reportedly engaged Albert in meaningful conversations, and delighted him with her wit.
Even more amazingly, she is said to have had a pretty good relationship with the Prince’s wife.

The Roaring Twenties and the Flapper Dress.

The 1920’s were most popular for the Flapper dress which is easily associated with the “Roaring Twenties”.
The Flapper dress had a drop waist, which gave women a more boyish figure which was popular at the time.
The low hemlines were also popular because it allowed women to kick up their heels in dances such as the Charleston.
Flapper dresses were adorned with embellishments, feathers.

60 year old Male Fashion Model.

I studied law but never practiced and instead worked in the movie business and advertising.
Due to personal reasons I started a new job in April 2015.
For the fun of it I decided to grow my beard thinking it would be a mess, but people said they liked it.
This happened many times and so I realized maybe I should try being a model.
I started being more careful with the way I dress and understood that maybe I had something.
That is when I went to see agencies, and that’s when my career began. I was almost 60 by then.I really love what I am doing and get great pleasure from doing it.
What else could I ask for? Maybe to work for a huge international campaign like Chanel or Dior.
We all have dreams. And this buzz could help.
Who knows.
