Revlon introduced its new lipstick and nail color Fire and Ice in the fall of 1952, and ads featuring Dorian Leigh photographed by Richard Avedon were published in the November issues of many fashion magazines. The iconic ad went on to win Advertising Age's prestigious Magazine Advertisement of the Year award:

On March 1, 1932, brothers Charles and Joseph Revson, along with chemist Charles Lachman, established a nail polish company they named Revlon (the “l” in Revlon came from Lachman).

In his book Fire and Ice: The Story of Charles Revson – the Man Who Built the Revlon Empire (William Morrow and Company, 1976), Andrew Tobias chronicled the career of the man “who started with one bottle of nail polish and a fine ear for female fantasy and built an empire – The Revlon Company – worth millions from them”:

A fashion trend that emerged in the 1940s was the clothing industry targeting the teenage consumer. Previously, teenagers had to look for clothes in either the children's or women's departments. Now high school girls could find teen-sized clothing (10-16) in the newly-created teen shops of many popular department stores. The teen specialty industry continued to expand as designers and manufacturers created fashion lines just for teens.

Here are a few examples from the April 1945 Seventeen magazine featuring Pat Geoghegan:

Popular Seventeen magazine model Joan Olson was featured in a behind-the-scenes article in the Summer 1950 Photography Workshop magazine photographed by Peter Martin.

Realizing the popularity of new, teen-oriented magazines like Seventeen, savvy 1940s clothing manufacturers began producing fashion lines targeted specifically to teenage girls. In 1944, the Epstein Garment Company of New York debuted the dress line Teena Paige. Ads featuring these pretty dresses ran almost monthly, especially at the height of their popularity in the 1950s.

Although married, Helen Ryan was a very popular junior model in the 1950s. She appeared on the covers and in the editorial pages and ads of teen magazines and was a Seventeen magazine favorite.

In the 1960s, Helen’s modeling jobs reflected who she was in real life…a pretty, young wife and mother.

Helen was interviewed about her modeling career for the Ford Models/Fashion Institute of Technology Archives in July 2010. At that time,...

Helen Ryan’s modeling career began when a photographer spotted her as she was performing in the Jones Beach, New York, water ballet.
