Looking for a Shakespeare quote about the prince having been the ideal every man wished to be.

[Asking for a friend] Someone's describing one of the princes (Hamlet? Hal?), and says something to the effect that he was the model of perfection for all men or that he was once the ideal every man strived for. Except "model," "epitome," and "paragon" don't seem quite like the right word.
It makes the friend think of a cardboard cut-out of a person that you might stand next to for a picture. Standard? Placard? What was the quote?
Extra bonus clue: the cover of her copy of the play was red.
