Brief Introduction of Kibbe Body Types

One of the kibbe body types is the dramatic classic kibbe body type. Kibbe Body Types as a whole has already been covered in one of the articles, but for those who merely want a quick overview, I’ll discuss them once as usual. So, David Kibbe, a former stylist, created these kibbe body types. The Kibbe Body System’s central purpose is body acceptance rather than partial body concealment. Kibbe body types are divided into eight categories. The categories of body types include theatrical romantic body type, flamboyant gamine body type, flamboyant natural body type, dramatic classic body type, soft classic body type, soft gamine body type, soft natural body type, and soft dramatic body type.

Ying & Yang Balance

The Kibbe approach focuses on the Yin and Yang balance of the individual. While yin represents soft qualities and yang represents sharp qualities. The yin and yang proportion of the Dramatic Classic kibbe body type is mixed, but slightly more yang-leaning. Because of this, they are identified by slightly more yang characteristics such as masculine, sharp, strong, large, etc.

What are the Dramatic Classic Kibbe Body Type Features?

Dramatic Classics’ have a symmetrical body with vertical lines. They have a body that is straight and slightly wide.

  • They are not extremely tall, only up to 170 cm.
  • Their bodies are fairly trim and compact. They are slightly muscular and their flesh is taut.
  • Also, they have smooth, angular lines on their faces. Small, almond-shaped eyes and thin, straight, or narrowly pointed lips.
  • Dramatic Classics’ bone structure is symmetrical as other Classics. They have a slightly angular/ wide bone structure.

Furthermore, their shoulders are slightly squared and narrow. They have slightly longer arms and legs. Also, their hands and feet are marginally squarish. Their hips and chest are both in proportion to their waist. When they gain weight, they get the weight from the waist and around the hips. This leads to the body adopting a pear-shaped form.

How to Style Dramatic Classics’ Lines?

Since Dramatic Classic Kibbe people have tall, sharp, and masculine bodies, it would be nice to focus on this sharp and strong structure and dress accordingly. Keeping your combination simple and straight will provide sharpness. Since dramatic classics’ have long and powerful lines, sharp or sculpted clothes would be really great for them. Also, the fabric of your clothes can be slightly heavy and moderately stiff because your body shape looks well. Moreover, deep colors (dark or medium colors that are comparatively bright) and neutrals will bring out your long vertical line body very well.

Makeup Ideas for Dramatic Classic

As you read above, dramatic classics’ yin and yang balance are symmetrical with slightly angular edges so yang-leaning. David Kibbe gives some key points for makeup application in his book which is called “Metamorphosis”.

Dark and smokey colors are more likely to suit their sculpted faces. Mixing those deep and dark colors can highlight sharp edges and angles.

Strongly shaped smoky eye makeup by using matte goods would be good on them. In addition to this, a relatively deep color is suggested for balanced and clean-looking lips. You might want to buy some eyeshadow palette for smokey makeup, take a look from here.

Celebrities like Jackie Kennedy, Lana Turner, Diana Rigg, Michelle Dockery, Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Palermo, Lizzy Caplan, and Chou Tzuyu are examples of Dramatic Classics. The list is endless. I’ll discuss a few of them so you can see the body types. However, I would like to clarify that images of celebrities or any other kind are not meant to be used as benchmarks for the Dramatic Classics. They only act as examples of how yin and yang can coexist. The similarity in body type does not necessarily equate to Kibbe body type. So, I’m hoping you’ll focus on this matter.
