Yardley of London Cellophanes Lipcolor 1969

I love this beautiful 1969 Yardley of London ad for Cellophanes Lipcolors and Nailcolors, featuring model Patsy Sullivan. This was nearing the end of Yardley’s fabulously romantic and colorful London Mod-type ad campaigns of the mid to late ’60s.

Funky Boots and Shoes! I am quite certain that these… Read more »

I really love this Cover Girl Medicated Make-up ad from the September 1969 issue of ‘TEEN magazine.  Featuring a fresh-faced Cybill Shepherd, after her win of the 1968 “Model of the Year” show.  I can remember watching that Model of the Year broadcast (I was babysitting), and thinking how incredibly beautiful Cybill was.  She just… Read more »
