I have long intended to do a series of posts such as this one, featuring models mostly from the pages of Seventeen Magazine. So I am finally beginning today. When I was a teen myself, I LOVED Seventeen, and I think I must have spent hours reading and re-reading them. I admired so many of the models, and wished I could look like them and dress like them. So I will show you some of my favorite models, as seen in the advertisements and fashion layouts "back in the day".
I'll start with Susie Blakely, a gorgeous model who later became an actress. She has appeared in films and in numerous TV movies and series, including the mini-series "Rich Man, Poor Man" This first picture of her is from a Revlon ad:
And this one for Dial Soap:
Shire-Tex by Davenshire, Inc. is up next:
For Princess Gardner, of wallet fame:
Presto, you're beautiful - with Presto Electric Rollers (I think she's probably beautiful without them, too):
Another Revlon ad:
Clean Make-up from Cover Girl (which I happen to use myself):
An advertisement for Singer sewing machines - what a great gingham outfit!
And here, with Jennifer O'Neill in an ad for the Cotton Producer's Institute :
So that's it today for the beautiful Ms. Blakely, and there will be many more lovely models coming soon!
