Answer by Matthew K
Traditional beauty usually implies “classical” or “natural” beauty–drawing on profiles and busts of the ancients or invoking the imagery of wood nymphs. Sophisticated beauty has more to do with “dressed-up” beauty or beauty that is a cultured or stylized image. Traditional beauty would appeal to the masses whereas sophisticated beauty would appeal more to a cosmopolitan audience. Sophisticated beauty implies culture and knowledge whereas traditional beauty implies simplicity and naivete.
