Since when did being skinny become the new beautiful? What happened to lovely lady curves?

In the 20s century, while the food in the western countries (like USA, Germany...) became more accessible - the model of the feminine beauty became thinner and thinner.If you will look at Marilyn Monroe's body - today she wouldn't be model (maybe a plus size).

If 150 years ago you were poor- you were skinny. Now if you are poor- you can be obese. If being tanned 150 years ago meant that you work in the fields, now it means that you can afford yourself going to expensive vacations wold wide.

My opinion: If the rich people 10 years from now will get to another planet, which will give their skin a green color - the poor ones will paint their skin to appear luxurious, too.
