Looks vary wildly from decade to decade, as shown by the curled bob of 1920, the bombshell hair and red lips of 1950, frizzled hairspray nest of 1980, and the natural-looking, dewy makeup of 2010. In addition to the visual traits of the time, the model also embodies the spirit of the decade through facial expressions and poses, successfully portraying quirks like the attitude and sass of the ’90s woman to the selfie-obsessed female of today.
