The standard of beauty is changing rapidly, not only among women. Despite the fact that men are generally not interested in following fashion trends, there are some general criteria for attractiveness that are characteristic of each decade.
Bodybuilding was at its peak. All women of that time fell in love with the Prussian athlete Eugene Sandow with a powerful body and incredible charisma.
During the First World War, gallantry, gentlemanliness and the "handlebar" mustache became popular.
The whole world watched silent films, and at the same time, men in tight trousers, jackets and slicked-up hair. The sex symbol of that time is Rudolph Valentino.
In the 1930s, Hollywood became a trendsetter. The ideal image of that time was a toned body, good posture and broad shoulders. Huge muscle mass was not popular, but mustaches tried to be worn by everyone.
The Second World War greatly changed the world opinion about the attractiveness of men. Stern, courageous men in military uniform, without any facial hair, fell in love with women of that time.
Leather jackets and a cool motorcycle were what attracted the youth of the 50s. Marlon Brando from the painting "The Savage" became the standard for many girls of that time. Brutality and audacity were more relevant than ever.
Men with a soulful look, pumped up torso and some grooming were considered sexy. For example, Alain Delon with an athletic build.
Bodybuilding is back in vogue. Arnold Schwarzenegger with muscles pumped to the maximum was considered ideal. Men filled gyms and women went crazy for the new Hollywood star.
Again, athletic men were the standard of beauty. This time, a tan and a non-pumped body were added to the muscles.
Bodybuilders have been replaced by men who are indifferent to their appearance. sloppy clothes, matted hair, an ordinary figure without a hint of pumped muscles. This style became popular thanks to the popularization of rock and grunge. Kurt Cobain has been on the list of the most attractive personalities.
The beginning of the new century is similar to the 1930s. Fit figures with six abs, a gentleman's set of expensive suits and styling in the salon are back in fashion.
It's time for hipsters. Tattoos, long well-groomed beards, vintage items are what young people are looking at.
At the same time, a wave of healthy lifestyles has begun in Europe and the United States, the hallmarks of which are sportswear, a strong physique and gadgets for health monitoring.
