KIRKUS REVIEW

By the director of the Barbizon School of Modeling, this, in its glowing, glamoured version of the most attractive career for the attractive American girl is in many ways misleading. For here you will see your beautiful self in the showrooms of Sally Victor, Nettie Rosenstein, Valentina -- and not behind the racks in some dump on 7th Avenue; you will be earning handsome money (Time magazine ran the figure that only 50 or 60 photographic models out of 1000 in New York made between then and twenty thousand a year); you will be buying lovely clothes, moving in charmed circles. Getting down to essentials, this identifies the particular qualifications for teen age and junior models, illustration jobs, high-fashion models, specialized jobs, catalogue and confession magazine work, television and fashion films, wholesale and retail modelling, fashion shows -- and gives you the necessary pointers on posing, your face, your figure, your clothes, etc. A last chapter includes some of the misconceptions about this profession with a little more realism, but the illusion has already been created.
