Magazines #55: Glamour (Nov. 1974)


What was in style for the ladies at the close of '74 you ask?  Look no further than this issue of Glamour magazine - chock full of mid-seventies fashions.  Sadly, the miniskirt was out... and polyester slacks were in, but it still an interesting tour of what was considered beautiful forty-two years ago.  Enjoy.





Not the greatest cover I've ever seen, that's for sure.


No bigass garden tubs in 1974.  Those wouldn't rear their massive head into being standard issue for new homes until the mid to late nineties.


It's a Calvin Klein - Salem cigarette combo ad.  Today, a mainstream fashion brand wouldn't dream of pairing up with big tobacco.


Sort of reminds me of the mom on That 70s Show.



Years have gone by, and those psycho eyes haven't changed a bit.
















Kind of an odd giveaway - a pantyhose ad featuring a terrarium as a prize. Interesting.

    1. Ugly? Hardly. Better than some of the weird crap they put out in the '80s and the nondescript '90s.

      "Was Eve flat chested?"...now there's an interesting theological question

  3. I miss the days when "sack" was part of the language of booze, rich nutty flavor and all. I saw plenty of minis in 74, but in TV World they were only worn by hookers, along with boots. TV World couldn't wait to get those embarassing sinful blasphemies off screen.

    The Dry Sack ad reminds me of Ridley Scott's classic TV spot for Chanel #5.
