Take for instance male/female models of today and compare them to ones 40 years ago. Why does it seem that models of today are sooo much cuter? I wonder how models will look 40 years from now?

I think they do. But keep also in mind that its also our point of view that is changing. A few hundred years ago fat woman were more attractive then the slim ones, from their point of view...

People back then would think your idea of "cute" was ugly.

Just like in the medieval times, heavy people were "cute", and the rail thin skeletons we have as "models" would be considered to be disgusting, poor, ugly wretches.

Every generation thinks theirs is the "cutest".

Re: Are people cuter today than they were say 40 years ago?
you can't really judge, you'd have to take someone from 1950 and outfit them in whatever you deem acceptable now and THEN judge.
Changes in nutrition, medical procedures and plastic surgery (like others have mentioned) have an impact. In 1950 a wasp -waisted figure and a slightly fuller face were preferred. Now a more athletic/less curvy and angular face seems to be preferred in women
For men a less bulky build and androgynous features seem to be preferred.

I don't think people have changed as a species. What you are perceiving is a change in fashion rather than an actual, physical change.

It wasn't that long ago that girls wanted to be short, so they were shorter than there dates. To be short was an atribute for a girl. Now, everyone wants to be tall, mostely I think for prescense and also to carry weight better.

Back then, girls were short and had small feet (another attribute) and a very small waist. Now they're tall, size 9 is considered "normal" and the waist doesn't seem to be as small, more of a boyish figure (even if they are big busted).

It's just what the media has brainwashed everyone into thinking is "hot". It will change again one day, too. The media tried to push it with Sarah Jessica Parker and that's when the push back happened. Some bought into it but most were thinking "no way", what's the fuss about?

It depends on whose children or mistresses are looking for a career, if they have a certain look that is different then TPTB will start making that the "in" thing.

Conspiracy's are really everywhere.

As disturbing as it seems :-) 40 years ago was 1970, not 1950.

Just as mutts make better looking dogs, the further away one gets in ethnic purity, the better looking they tend to be.

So, yes, people are much better looking today than 40 years ago. More dark haired blue eyed combinations which used to be rare and today is seemingly very common and is such a great look.

Oh dear god did you have to drag that into it, it is the reason I quit buying fashion magazines altogether - seriously, I couldn't bear to have her face on the page, and it was everywhere, that was years ago and it still is, so disturbing.

At one point Vogue sent me a really cheap renewal option like 12.00 a year, and the ad had 3 covers, one Sarah Jessica Parker, one Michelle Obama, and one Angelina Jolie.

I might have taken advantage of the low price but the featured individuals summed up everything that is wrong with fashion magazines today and I threw it out. I want to read about the designers and the clothes, not some celebrity gossip garbage or watered down politics. I want pictures of beautiful women wearing beautiful clothes, it's pure pleasure, pure hedonistic escapism, plus some practical wardrobe advice. Instead you get pharmaceutical ads and ugly girls and trash gossip. Gave up on the whole genre entirely, and I used to be a good customer. Fuck it. I'll make my own fashion magazine before I'll buy theirs again.

Every generation thinks theirs is more attractive than the previous generation. With the latest generation, the addition of surgeries of every type, botox, cosmetic dentistry and the list is long - how can one even know the true looks of many people?

Looks are relative when all is said and done.

1970's
The guys back then had bigger noses, now the flat nose is more preferred on the guys. That's the primary feature that I see different.
The girls don't look any different, except there a few who were more personalities, than beautys on this list. Women had more hair choices back then, most guys only like long hair -that may be the difference.

Here's the girls of 2011 (I don't think there any prettier than the ones of the 1970's, but I'm not a guy)

Re: Are people cuter today than they were say 40 years ago?
None of you has seemed to notice that airbrushing and photoshop are routinely used now on all models and movie-stars. Is the average person better-looking? People today have a lot more leeway in acceptable hairstyles and clothes. Even growing up in the 50's I would look at people and think they would look so much better if certain things were stylish. I can never look at those first James Bond movies and think Sean Connery was good-looking when he was young...the 60's styles didn't suit him at all, imho. Same with many of the female stars with the rocket-bra boobs.
