    Because you're looking at professional photographs, particularly ones of special people such as in your example (a famous actress).

    People can be made to look great when properly made up, dressed, posed, and photographed in the proper light. And some people are exceptionally pretty in the first place. But people are the same now as they were then.

      False.

    because nowaday women have a feminist mind: they want to act like men, look like men, etc.

    In the 1920-1950 women used to act and look like women.

    Yes they were. Feminine, elegant, and classy unlike those of today. I would say 60s and 70s too.

    I don't think that women were prettier from the 1920s to the 1950s. In fact, women back then "aged faster" because they gave birth to "more children", which shortens the "telomeres" in a woman's body. In addition, back then, a larger percentage of women also "smoked cigarettes" which also causes rapid aging. Between smoking and having large broods of kids, women aged "horribly" during the first half of the 20th century compared to the way they age today.

    because they had higher standards of class

    so you are using one photo of one women to represent all women from a span of 4 decades???

    what kind of ignorant generalization of a question is this?

    you are just picking and choosing based on the fact that you are against radical social change and progression which happened around the 60's
