BetteBack August 8, 1974: Fashion – Girls Look Like A Woman

El Paso Herald Post
August 8, 1974

83870

The common denominator for a variety of new fashions from high-styled Adolfo to funky Bette Midler is that “they all make a girl look like a woman.” There is even a revival, in the most recent showings, of big hats, four-inch heels and white gloves.
