What happened to this female ideal that was everywhere in the middle of the last century?

Okay, the bodies are a bit unfeasible and I don’t expect a real cowgirl to show that much thigh, but these paintings of women are a lot more realistic and womanly than the images we’re bombarded with nowadays. Plus, there’s a cheekiness that has been lost: a particular wide-cheekboned naughty smile that has been given up today in favour of the porn-star pout.
