"It's possible that you may be much better looking than you think or - not quite so knockout. Standards of beauty are madly variable. But so are the ways of beauty today - variable and wonderful.  There exists at this moment, an alchemy of sorts that can go a long way to help strengthen or steady or even sweeten the character visible through skin and bone. There are other alchemies that you can eat. These are for health - that boring sounding but terribly becoming element.  For a hopeless face there is hopeful surgery. On counters across the world, bottles and boxes, tubes, jars and phials hold change for the better. Now, if you care to, you can say say to anything you don't like about yourself  - get lost."

Harper.s Bazaar October 1952
