Forget Emily Post, if there is one classy lady we would like to get advice from, it's Twiggy! This vintage magazine article brought a smile to our faces.


1. Always be natural. Putting on airs will only make a giggle out of you. Be yourself and if you don't know something say so.

2. If you like bright and pastel colors, wear them. They lift your spirits to the skies. And you look much prettier, especially when it's a dark, foggy day, and people are in the dumps.

3. Take your problems to your Mum. She's your best friend in the world really, and she'll help you figure everything out just right. She'll love having you turn to her because that's what she's there for.

4. Take your vitamins and eat the right food. If you live at home, your Mum sees you do, but if you're away travelling a good bit, then it's more difficult and you have to manage for yourself.

5. Always have girl friends. They're a comfort to be wth. Girls need to have other girls so they can compare notes on clothes and boys and things.


1. Don't go around being a femme fatale and trying to take all the boys away from girls you know. Before you know it, everybody, boys and girls alike, will hate you. You'll even hate yourself.

2. Don't wear too much make-up so you look like a clown. You need much less than older girls. Bring out your own beauty subtly.

3. Don't have elaborate sophisticated hairdos. You should wear your hair simply, in a style fitting to your face. And the simpler it is, the easier it will be for you to take care of.

4. Don't let your clothes go to wreck and ruin. If a button is loose, sew it on. And don't just throw your clothes around anywhere when you undress. Hang them up.

5. Don't be a nasty old gossip. You can do a great deal of harm and absolutely no good. And other girls and boys would stay away from you. If you can't say something decent about another person, then don't say anything at all.
