[light wear to extremities, a couple of tiny dents in bottom edges of both covers; jacket lightly rubbed/soiled, a few tiny chips and tears in rear panel]. (pen & ink drawings; B&W photographs) The author endeavors to tell her readers "everything [she] learned as a teen-age model about good looks, grooming and personality . . . all my secrets of poise and glamour in one big book . . . to help YOU become the most popular girl in your set!" The book was reissued in 2014, and gained a sort of retro-appreciation for its Fifties-era tips on everything from hair/skin/figure problems to such topics as "What to Wear Where" and "On the Job." (Among the tips in the latter section: "Never treat a business office as if it were your personal boudoir." Harvey Weinstein, are you listening?)
