THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE


"Mrs. Patrick Guinness, not yet twenty and already celebrated as one of the great beauties of our time, wears here one of the great jewels - a bracelet of diamond-set emeralds, astonishing for their size and limpid first-water brilliance. By Van Cleef & Arpels. Custom made face powder by Charles of the Ritz."



"The Vicomtesses de Ribes, whose almond-eyed Renaissance beauty conquered New York this winter, lives with her husband and two little children in Paris, where she devotes herself to a major charity event, Le Benefice de l'essor."



"Mrs. E. Haring Chandor has the clear-featured handsomeness of the ideal American beauty. She lives in New York, where, this spring, she is serving on the committee for the Heart Fund's "Heart of America" ball at the Ambasssador Hotel."
