With videos like “100 Years of Beauty in 1 Minute” or “100 Years of Beauty: Russia” the Internet has been treated to gorgeous viral videos that show the glamorous side of women’s lives throughout history, but according to Polish costume blogger Karolina Zebrowska these videos are leaving out reality.
She says: “To be frank, it was supposed to be just another “Beauty Through The Decades” video. I saw lots of them already, but they all have seemed to show beauty standards in a very stereotypical and pop-culture way, so I wanted to do a more historically accurate one. As I was doing some research, I became more and more aware that beautiful faces and fashion we see on the photos, ads and fashion plates are just an idealistic version of reality. So here’s to reality.”
