Here is a picture of a woman from the late dressed in classic Gibson Girl attire. Her dress/blouse is all lace, and she has the classic Gibson Girl "pompadour" hairstyle.

The early 1900s Gibson Girl was the first national beauty standard for American women. Her neck was thin and her hair piled high upon her head in the contemporary bouffant, pompadour, and chignon ("waterfall of curls") fashions. The statuesque, narrow-waisted ideal feminine figure was portrayed as being at ease and stylish. She was a member of upper class society, always perfectly dressed in the latest fashionable attire appropriate for the place and time of day.
