Her own kind of woman, Suzy Parker makes no bones about being herself, enjoys the often startling effect of candor, the snappy comeback, the playful humor of tucking a button that reads "I Hate Men" beneath the jacket of her Chanel suit. Here she rests in Harvey Berin's long navy blue crepe, the white front of its blouson bodice, middy-throated and overlaid in chalk beads.

The This Minute Woman
-alert, alive to the possibilities of every hour; as aware of the roasting chestnuts on Fifth Avenue, as of the glistening diamonds at Tiffany - and ready to enjoy both.
