For three decades Helen Gurley Brown was Editor in Chief for one of the most popular women's magazines, Cosmopolitan. It was there that she redefined the idea of the modern day woman, one who was bold, sensual and sophisticated.
When I was five years old, I knew exactly who Helen Gurly Brown was. Cosmopolitan was my mother's bible, her Holy Grail. It was somewhere in those glossy pages that she learned so many "tricks of the trade" that is still a part of her daily beauty regime. I would thumb through the magazines cover-to-cover and look admirably at all the fashion, reading every insert, daydreaming about one day taking over the fashion industry.

What a terrific HGB tribute set! I love that your Mom read Cosmo religiously. I know that HGB made both traditionalists and hard-core feminists angry, but I think she helped a lot of women find their feet. She was all about independence and self-esteem, she just went about it in a different way. (Don't burn your bra... wear a bright purple one!)
