The Gibson Girl was the ideal beauty of the late 1800s into the early 1900s. She was beautiful, independent, and wore her lovely long hair piled on her head. The Gibson Girl is often seen with wide feminine hips, a large bosom, and a narrow neck. Charles Dana Gibson was the original artist of the iconic Gibson Girl.
The artist portrayed the dignified Gibson Girl as an equal, yet often teasingly dominant to men. His art represented women in different roles than just the traditional, including drawings of scholarly and athletic women.
The Gibson Girl imagery we often come across inspired us to create a modern Gibson Girl styled shoot. It couldn't have been more perfect that we have a beautiful red head friend who also happens to love vintage jewelry. The model featured in this shoot has the classic characteristics of a Gibson Girl. The photos turned out fantastic! All of the jewelry worn for the shoot is available in our Etsy shop.
