Just a year after the magazine was founded in 1935, Mademoiselle was already producing these gorgeous cover illustrations. Although the credit is truly due to Helen Jameson Hall, the artist behind the images. Flirty and demure, these illustrations leave more to the imagination than modern covers. I love that each edition had a unique, hand-painted logo; no logo was exactly alike.
I wish I knew more about the life and endeavours of Ms. Hall. However, even with the vast amount of information found online these days, I still couldn't manage to find a thing. Any ladies or gents happen to know anything about her? Pray tell if you do!
