Marilyn, Monica and those 60s fashion magazines + Romy ...
60s fash mags! I came across this 1962 issue of TOWN magazine online for sale for a pricey £299.00. I had been looking for this, a key magazine of my teenage years, which I had in 1962 when I was 16 - and I still have that cover of Marilyn, from that November 1962 issue, which I have framed (below), its one of those George Barris shots from that beach shoot in 1962, as per my other Marilyn posts. So I think I can pass on this expensive purchase.
TOWN was a '60s London fashion/style glossy, aimed at that man about town (rather like NOVA was for the emerging discerning female) - I also had this TOWN issue with Monica Vitti - right - I would love to get this again.
