You wouldn't know it, but hair once covered this entire part of my face. I owe my modeling career to depilatories.
It's been awhile since we've shared a Technicolor lithograph, and the main impression we have of this one is that in glamour photography some of the poses display the body in a nice way while still looking, objectively speaking, totally ridiculous. Like this one. But that's an important aspect of professional photography—knowing what works and what doesn't. We can just hear the lensman behind this shot telling the model, “No, believe me. It'll look good. Elbows higher. That's it. Now give me a biiiig smile.” And she's thinking, “What the fuck have I gotten myself into?” But the pose works. The image, titled “Just Teasing,” is from Champion Line and the model is unknown—though no doubt very trusting. No date on this, but figure around 1960. You can see about fifty more of these colorful lithos. Just click the keywords below then scroll down.
