Beauties of the '20s

Just watched the season finale of Americas Next Top Model (guilty pleasure!) and the insane ruffle/streamer/samba things flowing off their arms on the runway, we're seasons behind in NZ by the way, reminded me somewhat of this last photo. I love old pageant and modelling photos like these, a lot of the comments underneath were commenting not just on how the perception of beauty has changed over time, but also on how un-pretty all these gals are. Personally I think they're gorgeous, not to mention their clothes! They seem very real, and I love how in the second photo, Miss Atlanta's hem needs fixing. A nice little touch of imperfection.
