The Grown-Up and the Glamour Girl (1930s-40s) - Working girls and movie stars of the Great Depression and World War II . The Princess (1940s-50s) - Dior's New Look and the USA's postwar cultural dominance . Twiggies and Hippies (1960s-70s) - Protest and revolution, The Beatles, Twiggy, Warhol, psychedelics, flower children, and women's libbers. The Jetsetter (1980s-90s) - The "Me Generation", the cult of fitness and perfection, supermodels and super career women . The Fashionista (1990s-2000s) - The massive influence of entertainers, sports figures, and the rich and famous . The Lady or the Tiger - Summarizes the Ideal's march through the century.
