By selecting certain patterns, the magazine purports to select sensory experiences with particular, valuable meanings and sell them to their readers.
But however charming these fashion plates were, Bidou deemed them old fashioned, and he proposed a radical transformation, with new approaches and new techniques that would yield a very different kind of fashion plate.
What Henri Bidou wanted to see was not that new, however.
Bidou, it seems, was not prepared to leave anything either to chance or indeed to the couturiers. Le Journal des Dames et des Modes also captures an important moment in the turbulent history of France, when one of the most totalitarian regimes in Europe was brutally brought to an end and re- placed by an equally brutal period of transition: The political, social, cultural and artistic changes brought about by these events were captured in fashion magazines whose illustrated plates became a unique, and at times even humorous, way of reporting these gruesome events, as we glean from the pages of Le Journal des Dames et des Modes.
Even more revealing is the accompanying caption: One of the consequences of the Revolution was that the court of Versailles ceased to be the Eu- ropean arbiter of taste and the stage for the display of the sumptuous rococo fashions.
Instead, the latest fashionable clothes were paraded in public places for all to see: This is illustrated in a charming aquatint by Philibert-Louis De- bucourt —l entitled Promenade de la galerie du Palais Royal , in which we see peo- ple milling about against the background of the famous neoclassical portico. In the shop we see el- egant young ladies dressed in neoclassical attire complemented by Grecian hairstyles surveying the tempting merchandise. In the middle ground, a man dressed in the black outfit introduced as the new uniform of the middle classes contrasts with the figure of a dandy dressed in a sophisticated Parisian costume consisting of a white shirt and cravat tied under his chin and a collared redingote completed by breeches and soft boots.
There is no doubt that this image captures the street atmo- sphere which provided artists with inspiration for their fashion plates. By the mid-nineteenth century, fashion magazines were well-established in their new role. We see this wider picture captured uniquely on the pages of the fashion magazines published during the Enlightenment, and as such they can justifiably be regarded not only as repositories of taste, manners and mores but also mirrors of their time.

Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle all provided definitions of to kalon.
Although within her unique quest, the methodology she uses is that employed by philosophy, aesthetics, and the visual arts, she chooses instead to address the arcane complexities of the human need for adornment and embellishment.
She does this by selecting a marvelous and vast repertoire of examples gleaned from all of these very disciplines as case studies to corroborate her arguments. I shall start my book review by dealing with each of them separately, starting with the one I consider the most universal, and therefore the most difficult to debate: Plato also makes a distinction between beauty in art and beauty in nature and it is the latter he takes seriously. This is because he considers beauty to be much too serious a concept to be left to the artists he regarded with such disdain that he wanted them banished from the ideal republic that could only be successfully gov- erned by philosophers—who else?
Beauty for Plato is a means towards an end and as such its physical manifestation becomes less important; rather, instead of residing in certain qualities an object needs to have in order to qualify as beautiful, Plato approaches it from a psychological point of view: Symposium and Phaedrus. This is what it is to go aright, or be led by another, into the mystery of Love: Plato c, d in Cooper In the latter we find Socrates examining beauty in the sense in which it is addressed in philosophical aesthetics Beards- ley In the former, Socrates discusses beauty by offering alter- native possibilities: Even that utensil is fine if finely made.
Socrates appeared to agree by referencing Heraclitus, who argued that: Plato d, e, b in Cooper In the Philebus, Plato gets closer to what properties make an object beautiful: Thus, we find that measure metron and proportion symmetron constitute beauty. At the end of the dialogue: There is little doubt that a puritan such as Plato would have been horrified at the idea of makeup.
In fact we know this for sure because we find him famously ranting against cosmetics. Surprising as it might seem that a philosopher such as Plato would have even been aware of the existence of cosmetics, he was.
Moreover, he wrote about them, not surprisingly, in a derogatory manner. Plato b, c in Cooper This book sets out to examine concepts of female beauty in terms of the ideal and the real; how abstract and real ideas of beauty are represented in art and discussed in a range of texts, and the ways in which beauty is enhanced, possibly even created by cosmetics.
There are inherent tensions in any discussion of ideal and how far they are reflected in reality; how far abstract theories of beauty can be comfortably set beside applied beauty, that is, make-up, has never been considered before. I shall return to this important point beautifully presented by Ribeiro as the conclusion to this brilliant book.
The link between beauty and cosmetic arts is analyzed by using two exciting examples, one from the Cinquecento, the other from the twen- tieth century. In it he discusses the newly emerged profession of the courtier and what it takes to become a proper one, but he remembers to discuss also women, not least because of the three women who are among the distinguished group of interloc- utors listed at the beginning of the book and who take their place in the debate.
The conversation took place in March on four successive evenings at the Palace of the duke of Urbino with the duke himself Gui- dobaldo da Montefeltro taking part in the conversation; among the distinguished interlocutors were the humanists Pietro Bembo and Ber- nardo Dovizi cardinal Bibbiena and Giuliano de Medici. Now, every woman is extremely anxious to be beautiful or at least, failing that, to appear so.
So when Nature has fallen short in some way, she endeavours to remedy the failure by arti- ficial means. That is why we have women beautifying their faces so carefully and sometimes painfully, plucking their eyebrows and forehead, and using all those tricks and suffering all those little agonies which you ladies imagine men know nothing about but which they know only too well.
Castiglione Surely you realize how much more graceful a woman is who, if indeed she wishes to do so paints herself so sparingly and so little that whoever looks at her is unsure whether she is made- up or not, in comparison with one whose face is so encrusted that she seems to be wearing a mask and who dare not laugh for fear of causing it to crack… How much more attractive than all the others. How much more attractive than all the others is a pretty woman who is quite clearly wearing no make-up on her face, which is neither too pallid nor too red, and whose own colouring is natural and somewhat pale but who occasionally blushes openly from embarrassment or for some other reason , who lets her unadorned hair fall casually and unarranged, and whose ges- tures are simple and natural, betraying no effort or anxiety to be beautiful.
Nev- ertheless, a middle way is also acceptable, whereby cosmetics are used discreetly so as to be not noticed, so that the enhanced face replicates nature with the intention of deceiving, and that can be argued to be also morally wrong.
We have however a famous refutation of the view that nature is pref- erable to culture with all that it brings, including the artifice of using makeup, coming several centuries later from none other than Charles Baudelaire. With his characteris- tic irony and charm, Baudelaire brings into discussion two topics hitherto considered too frivolous to deserve even a mention: By predicat- ing charm—which he purloined from his own literary writings—on fashion, he is in fact pioneering a critical vocabulary for fashion writing, whereby charm is used as an evaluative concept in an analo- gous way to that of art criticism see McNeil and Miller forthcoming.
Baudelaire For Baudelaire, however, the use of makeup does not only improve on nature, but it helps create the decadent effect of the women he writes about with such passion in Les fleurs du mal: Thus, if I have been properly understood, painting the face is not to be used with the vulgar, unavowable intention of imitating the fair face of nature, or competing with youth.
It has, moreover, been observed that artifice does not embellish ugliness, and can only serve beauty. Who would dare assign to art the sterile func- tion of imitating nature? Make-up has no need of concealment, no need to avoid discovery, on the contrary, it can go in for display, if not with affectation, at least with a sort of ingenuous- ness. Ducasse in Alperson The remedy, Ducasse argues, must reside in cosmetics: Unbelievable things can be done to the eyes, making them seem larger, brighter and more umbrous than nature ever thought of creating them.
Shampoos, dyes, washes, and assiduous brushing can impart to the hair the gloss and colour it lacks; and permanent waves, switches, wigs, toupees and rats help to simulate the luxuriant growth that is not there. Teeth can be bought better looking and more serviceable than those we grow ourselves Ducasse in Alperson This we, of course, remember from the s; he was correct. Within these chapters, Ribeiro is also selective, by choosing to concentrate within each century on a few select topics, but enough to give the reader an idea of the multifac- eted subject of beauty and how it has been defined and enhanced throughout the ages.
Central to this chapter, however, is the empow- erment of women through fashion and appearance. During the eighteenth century the new discipline of philosophical aesthetics emerged and central to it was the concept of taste and judgment. The key question was how to find a rational explanation for something as personal as taste beauty being in the eye of the be- holder and all that … which would enable a transition from avowals in the first person singular: According to the British empirical philosophers, taste was akin to our five senses, something we are born with, which enables us to make value judgments.
Whoever would assert an equality of genius and elegance between Ogilby and Milton or Bunyan and Addison, would be thought to defend no less an extravagance, than if he had maintained a mole- hill to be as high as Teneriffe [sic], or a pond as extensive as the ocean. Hume By beauty I mean, that quality or those qualities in bodies by which they cause or some passion similar to it. Burke Thus, he writes: How does the slender stalk of the rose agree with the bulky head under which it bends?
