Those last photos made me laugh aloud. That sort of male fashion is a complete fantasy, no one is daft enough to wear it.

I like the fashions of the Regency era, very elegant.

The most absurd fashion I think were those huge hooped skirts women wore in the mid victorian era, most inconvenient.

Though I remember reading in the memoirs of an Edwardian lady that everyone had told her that crinolines had been more comfortable than the skirts of her own era, because their petticoats didn't get caught around their legs when they were walking!

I find those heavy dresses very disgusting and unfashionable i believe that would have you sweat quite alot. Your odor might not be too good.

The most beautiful has to be the Grecian dress sense.
