About This Quiz

There is nothing like a classic beauty. True beauty is timeless and would exist in any era, no matter how you were dressed, how you did your hair, how much makeup you wore or what your body shape was. But there are different time periods throughout our history where your looks might stand out more than others. Mostly because styles change, you might think you look hot now, but maybe in the future you will look back and wonder what you were thinking.

Would you have fit in during the '20s, when women tended to conceal their curves, started to wear their hair shorter and wore less makeup than in earlier years? The '50s were the days of Marilyn Monroe, when platinum blonde hair and curves were totally in. Then came the '60s and '70s, when things were way more free-flowing and natural, at least until the disco era messed that all up. Feathered hair? Seriously? The '80s were just a total mess, but then the '90s brought things back together, at least kind of. 

So many different decades have gone by, and each one has had its own look. Take this quiz to find out when you would have been the hottest.
