9780141355955: Betty Cornell Teen-Age Popularity Guide

Available again for a whole new generation of readers, the original 1950s popularity guide that was the inspiration for teen author Maya Van Wagenen's memoir Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek.

Filled with fun tips and vintage wisdom, Betty Cornell's Teen-Age Popularity Guide offers advice and guidance for teens who want to be poised, self-confident, and "shiny bright." Betty covers topics ranging from "Figure Problems," "Good Grooming," and "What to Wear Where" to hints on dating, hosting a great party, and becoming "the most popular girl in your set!"

BETTY CORNELL HUSTON was a teenage fashion model in the late 1940s and the early 1950s, working for the John Robert Powers, Harry Conover, and Ford Modeling agencies. As a well-known junior model, Betty was invited to conduct good grooming classes that ultimately led to a career as an author of advice books. She continued to model through the 1980s.

Betty married John J. Huston in 1952 and settled in the suburbs of Philadelphia where they raised three children. Betty has nine grandchildren, volunteers at her local school, and finds time to paint watercolors. Betty currently resides in Audubon, Pennsylvania.

Book Description Penguin UK, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. When you pick up this book, you begin an introduction to a new you. But first take a peek at the old one.  Are you fully satisfied with yourself?  Is everything you see up to snap?  Are you as pretty as you could be?  Poised?  Self-confident?  Shiny bright? Says Betty . . . 'You are unique.  It's pretty wonderful to think that there's nobody in this entire world who looks exactly like you (unless you are an identical twin).  You may take a bit after your mother, you may have your father's eyes, but essentially you are you.  And being you, you are all yours to make or break.'.
