Beauty Queens: A Playful History
Candace Savage (au)
This witty & insightful chronicle of beauty contests over the decades offers an engaging text & a stunning collection of photos of beauty queens past & present. Traces the evolution of the beauty pageant from its early days as a slightly scandalous display of feminine self-confidence to much-maligned sexist spectacle to its recent international popularity, particularly in the Third World. How did this oddball custom manage to become such a major cultural institution? When & where did the idea originate? (P.T. Barnum seems at least partly responsible.) And why have so many women signed on as both spectators & contestants? Emphasizing the glory years between 1920 & 1970, this book explores every aspect of the beauty contestís history. Color ill.
