It seems beauty ads in the 40s were more like "omg you're a disgusting person and no man will like you" rather than "if your wear this you'll look prettier"

Not a beauty ad but related

>>73320>He looked at me as much as to say, 'Your fault!'>And it was.
Holy shit, that's dark.
I also look at the illustration and my immediate thought is that the man is holding his hand after hitting the woman where she's holding her face, I wonder if that is intentionally ambiguous because you can plausibly say the guy is just adjusting his tie.

It makes me giggle that people were putting Lysol in their bag back then. I hope there weren't many women who actually used these products.

I think the type of clothing worn back then contributes to people in old photos looking more attractive. Both men and women wore formal clothes in daily life. These were often tailored to fit them better. Unlike today, tailors weren't used only by the wealthy. There were upper class, middle class, and working class tailors. The formless, baggy Tshirts and sweatshirts worn today hardly look good on anyone.
This photo is a good example of what I mean. These men are ordinary college students, not fashion models or movie stars, but the combination of a well fitting suit and carefully combed or slicked back hair makes it look like a gathering of hot guys. Try to imagine what the same men in this photo would look like in baggy jeans and Tshirts with unkept hair. That's much less attractive, isn't it?
You never know what will happen Anon. Maybe it will.
The worst thing is guys now don't dress up for anything, generally young men will wear a fitted suit for their first office jobs but it soon slides back to ill-fitted clothes or casual wear. And when women get dressed up for a night out, o look t-shirts and trainers again from the boys.
