The Flapper of the 1920’s was a total shift from the Gibson Girl. Flappers sported short hairdos, looser dresses that didn’t show waistlines, and often sported hats and other accessories. It was at this time when the 19th Amendment was ratified, allowing women to vote, a dramatic turn of events that impacted every aspect of life, including fashion.
Margaret Gorman was crowned Miss America in the year 1921. She was thought to have the ideal body type at the type, which was long and lean and almost boyish — a total shift from the hourglass figure of the previous decade.
