Berenson
1984

Any old timers remember Marisa Berenson?  When I found this book I kept thinking I knew this actress from somewhere.  Then I remembered the film Barry Lyndon (1975).   There is something about the glamor in these pages that make this an interesting find.  The hair is my favorite part of this book.  Fashion history collections possibly could hang on to this but regular public libraries…. sorry, its a weeder!

Enjoy the memories, though!

Holly, I am sure this was your book in high school!
