See How the Ideal Body Type Has Changed Throughout History
The same way distinct beauty trends have defined each decade, the ideal female body type has constantly changed throughout history.
We've got to hand it to BuzzFeed for creating this fascinating three-minute video that looks back at 3,000 years of women's beauty standards. Watch as different models don white bodysuits to accentuate society's ever-fluctuating standards.
And, if you look closely, you'll catch subtle appearances from the famous women who've helped influence each time period.
Though each model looks drastically different, showing off everything from a willowy Twiggy-esque physique to a Kim Kardashian-like booty, if you ask us, they're all beautiful.
