Some Mary Pickford to class up the joint and lend it some legit artistic, whaddya call it, sav-war fair?
Pickfordesque looks seem like a holdover, a modified Gibson Girl, squeaky-clean and chaste and upright compared to the brazen show-girl hussies. People look at this today and think "Grandma." Plus, she's got manicotti tubes in her hair.
Can't say; wasn't there; but perhaps she appealed more to women of the day. The editor's note for "New Eve" said it was aimed at women, after all. The magazine had fashion layouts, a chaste romance story, and a collection of pictures of a star's Italian villa. - and no ads for those picture books with illustrations "the way you like them."
