Classic woman. This style of feminine beauty is the epitome of elegance, especially if she is a Summer or Spring; although she can be any season.
If I were to choose a woman from the Bible who best represents a Classic, I would choose the Virgin Mary. You hear her story every year about this time. As a young lady, Mary was levelheaded and poised. She was a proper girl who was committed to following the social standards of her day. When an angel appeared to her and told her she would be pregnant she remained poised but she needed to know how that would happen since she was a virgin.
Was she being asked to break the rules and sleep with a man before marriage? My presumption is that if that had been the case she would have refused the offer and told the angel to go away. But it wasn’t the case, so instead she took on the incomprehensible responsibility of carrying the Christ Child, and she did it with tremendous faith and confidence. In fact, all throughout her life as the mother of Jesus, the Bible says she pondered in her heart the things she heard and saw as her baby’s Deity was revealed.
Classics are thinkers and planners. They watch what is going on around them, they study, they gain wisdom and they act on their knowledge without concern for their reputation. They do what is right even if others do not understand them. In fact, once they are convinced of something it is very hard to get them to change their mind.
Classics live a balanced life, they tend to eat right and exercise, they work hard and take the vacation time they earn. The Classic is not only organized and orderly, but she needs to be; in fact, chaos will quite often bring out the worst in her. When things get out of control she may get stressed, but rarely does she get caught up in the moment. She may be emotional by nature, but she is controlled and rational in mannerism.
