Defining Chic: Vintage Advice from Arlene Dahl

 

vintage books the 60s Hollywood legend chic camp beauty advice Arlene Dahl From the 1965 classic Always Ask a Man: Arlene Dahl’s Key to Femininity, in which the screen legend/advice columnist/astrologist dispenses classic tips on what is and what is not chic. My faves: “A gay dinner hat,” ”A trademark too ingenious too be corny,” and “Perfumed fans.” And woe to the woman with “a strident voice” who wears “diamonds at breakfast.” DEFINITELY NOT CHIC. But then you knew that. (via Bradford Shelhammer)
