 classical forms and shape of famous Venus

I've stumbled on this amazing article, where Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano has taken some amazing classical paintings of nudes from the past and re-imaged them to show what they would look like if their bodies conformed to what the 21st-century thinks of as an ideal of beauty.

 Venus through the modern beauty lense

I am honestly somewhat in a haze right now - I'm not sure what to think.  The modernized bodies are definitely what currently is considered as beautiful ( and some would even be considered "imperfect", that could be better). Yet , all of a sudden , they lost the feminine beauty. In my eyes at least. Go here to see more. 

PS: Show&Tell in life and polka-dots just below this post. 

What do you think? Am I the only one that thinks that classical beauty IS more beautiful then modern interpretation? Do you think that modern imaging became more girly, and less feminine?
