Carole Mallory: I Am a Cosmo Girl, Thanks to Helen Gurley Brown, and Proud of It!
Huffington Post - over 4 years
I once was photographed for Cosmopolitan in an editorial photograph with the logo, "What will happen to you if you become a Cosmo Girl." Well, opportunity came my way due to the credo of Helen Gurley Brown, who imbued in her readers and models that we could look sexy, have a career and stay single for as long as we wished and still have an active sex life -- like a man. I went on to become a supermodel known primarily for the ads who wanted to hire me to sell their products: De Beers Diamonds, Faberge Tigress, Chevy, Woolite, Spiedel, Clairol, Revlon, Hanes -- well, the list goes on and on and made me financially independent, which was a part of Helen's credo. I also was photographed for many other magazine covers, such as Esquire (yes, the men wanted my image to sell their copy); New York Magazine (chose me to promote a book, the Sensual Summer by X, and used a photo of me in a bikini being splashed by a fire hydrant); GQ (more men picking up on Brown's choice of sensua ...

Helen Gurley Brown, Legendary Cosmo Editor, Dies At 90
Huffington Post - over 4 years
NEW YORK (AP) -- Helen Gurley Brown, the longtime editor of Cosmopolitan magazine who invited millions of women to join the sexual revolution, has died. She was 90. Brown died Monday at a hospital in New York after a brief hospitalization, Hearst CEO Frank A. Bennack, Jr. said in a statement. "Sex and the Single Girl," her grab-bag book of advice, opinion, and anecdote on why being single shouldn't mean being sexless, made a celebrity of the 40-year-old advertising copywriter in 1962. Three years later, she was hired by Hearst Magazines to turn around the languishing Cosmopolitan and it became her bully pulpit for the next 32 years. She said at the outset that her aim was to tell a reader "how to get everything out of life -- the money, recognition, success, men, prestige, authority, dignity -- whatever she is looking at through the glass her nose is pressed against." "It was a terrific magazine," ...
