Watch 100 years of North and South Korean beauty trends in one minute

Posted by in videos

Cut Video has released the fourth edition of its 100 Years of Beauty series; this time focusing on female fashion trends in Korea.

Model Tiffany Lee's look is completely transformed from the stylish yet understated fashion of the 1910s, through the swinging 60s and all the way into the modern day.

Although her image alters markedly over the course of a century, the starkest change occurs from the 1950s onwards when the country was split in half by war.


While the South Korean trends (left) mimic many of those seen in the Western world, those of North Korea (right) seem firmly stuck in the past.
