As the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But even the beholders definition of beauty changes over time. Here are 7 beauty looks that were at one time considered beautiful but in the 21st century are looked back at as rather…odd.
Not to be confused with the wonderful composer Chopin, the Chopine was an extreme platform shoe that was used by women in the 15th-17th century to protect their dresses and shoes from the mud. It was not only a practical addition to the attire but a symbolic one was well. Those that wore these were often showing off their social status and many often had a maid on hand to support them while they attempted to walk in these 50cm platforms. Thank goodness for wellies.
