Paris Fashion from the Turn of the Last Century — Les Modes

Gibson Girl - early 1900s Gibson Girl was the first national beauty standard for American women. Her neck was thin and her hair piled high upon her head in the contemporary bouffant, pompadour, and chignon ("waterfall of curls") fashions.

She was a member of upper class society, always perfectly dressed in the latest fashionable attire appropriate for the place and time of day.
