A collection of beauty and diet tips for women of all ages from Madame Sylvia, a writer for Photoplay Magazine, whose vivid personality and unique insights into perfecting one's looks are as engaging now as they were then. Among Mme. Sylvia's helpful hints are various techniques for dancing to music from the radio to bring some pep to your step, firming the breasts with special arm twisting movements, squeezing off the fat from whatever body part needs slenderizing (including one's fingertips), and assorted gland stimulation exercises. Illustrated with many photographs of Mme. Sylvia demonstrating the methods she shared with such noted celebrities as Gloria Swanson, Constance Bennett, Norma Shearer, and Ronald Colman.
