Description - Vintage Secrets by Laura Slater

In the days before Botox, power cleanses and spin classes, women's fitness and beauty regimes pursued a very different ideal. The emphasis was on classic glamor and a fuller, womanly body shape, and between the 1920s and 1950s women everywhere looked to Hollywood's most stylish and iconic beauties for inspiration. Vintage Secrets: Hollywood Diet and Fitness reveals exactly what went into creating the looks made famous by the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly, detailing the eating habits, exercise routines, and style tips that helped usher in a golden age of silver-screen sophistication - and still inspire us today. Packed with beautiful photographs and vintage imagery, this book is an entertaining and accessible look at our timeless pursuit of the body beautiful.
