PostSubject: The Fords 1956: "What Is The Secret of America's Top Fashion Models?"   Mon Jan 11, 2010 7:18 pm

I've put scans of an article from the June 1956 issue of Glamour, entitled "What Is The Secret of America's Top Fashion Models?", in the Members Add Photos album.

It has a photo, taken by Diane and Allan Arbus, of Eileen Ford with ten of her models: Mary Jane Russell, Lois Gunas, Ann St. Marie, Anne Gunning, Patsy Shally, Georgia Hamilton, Leonie Vernet, Sunny Harnett, Lucinda Hollingsworth, and Jean Patchett.

The article highlights the Eileen Ford Diet Talk, and some description of the Fords' informal four-week course on How To Be A Model.

Thank you so much, Barry, for contributing this article! It's rare to have a group photo of Ford models, especially with them standing side by side. I have moved the article to the Some Top 60s Editors & Agencies Album: Eileen & Jerry Ford:
