With her hourglass figure, her expertly upswept hair, & her decidedly aristocratic air, she was everything American women in 1900 aspired to be. In the company of men, she held them captive to her obvious charms. "Before her," wrote the New York World, "the American girl was vague, nondescript, inchoate." Who was this icon of femininity? She was a figment of the imagination & product of the pen of illustrator Charles Dana Gibson. Never given a name, she was simply known as The Gibson Girl.

The Gibson Girl was defined as an emancipated post Victorian era woman, who wore daringly tight corsets to create an hourglass figure.She wore her hair long, and pulled it back into an updo.
