Romantic and Dramatic are the extreme ends of the yin-yang-spectrum of physical characteristics. That means, that Dramatics have dramatic facial features, extreme yang - sharp or broad, high cheekbones, very special facial features, like big or sharp noses, small or narrow eyes - could also be excessively big, huge eyes, like Joan Crawford, otherwise yang faces are almost manly faces.
My husband defines a yang face as "having character, being interesting" and yin face as "boring". (I have a yang face :-D)
The Romantics have this yin face. Round or heart shaped, short, childlike, with round or delicate, small features, big, feminine eyes, small nose, lush mouth, soft, applecheeks, dimples, you know, the classical idea of feminine beauty.
Now, Theatrical Romantics are only slightly sharper than Romantics. Romantics are all curves and kittens, Theatricals have some sharpness in bone structure.
So, take a guess. Which of these ladies would pass as men? Which of these ladies could be called less beautiful, in the classical, pretty, girlish kind of way. You know, Disney princess kind of way.
I would have guessed five of the six right, and the last one wrong.
I don't understand why Hedy Lamarr is "Theatrical Romantic" but Lana Turner "Dramatic".
What's Dramatic in her?
What's not yin in her lush, round mouth, round apple cheeks, cute little nose and chin... she even has dimples!
But - according to Kibbe she obviously belongs in the same groups as Anjelica Huston, Tilda Swinton and Cher.
And here's how Lana Turner got older:
Here's how Kathleen Turner got older.
They are both identified as Dramatic by Kibbe.
I wonder if he makes decisions like this to ensure he will have business, because this type identification system isn't very systematic and logical...
Also, this is Hedy Lamarr:
"Theatrical Romantic body type (flesh)
Soft and voluptuous, although trim and smallish (as opposed to wide and bulky).
Hourglass figure;curvy bustline and hips with a waspish waist."
Er... how is that "soft and voluptious"? "Hourglass figure"? "Curvy bustline"? "Waspish waist"?
