Biba Girl Ingrid Boulting 1971


A lovely feature on Biba model Ingrid Boulting, originally published in July 1971, detailing exactly how she achieved her own personal 'Biba Look' using products from the Biba cosmetics range. It was part of a six page Seventeen Magazine article, which also included the model Betty Sims (sister of Naomi Sims), as well as a young Veruschka look-alike.



                                                   You Can Be What You Want To Be
Individuality starts when you take stock of yourself: note assets and use them to best advantage, cope with the liabilities. Be aware of of other people too and let their style guide you to a look of your own. Ready? Go to it!

"I love everywhere," says the new model in town Ingrid Boulting, who hit New York via Africa, London and Paris. Ingrid is poster girl for Biba, the super-boutique at Bergdorf Goodman. " The Biba look suited me. I always did my makeup like this." She applies it like the pro she is, starting with her eyes - and have you ever seen anything softer, smokier They're ringed with mulberry gel shadow begun at the inner corners with a definite line, stroked up and out and blended by tapping the cushion of her fourth finger; yellow shadow is the bright touch below the brows. Next comes mascara from a wand, first on lash tips, then again, top and bottom. Think you see freckles? They're brown pencil dots, "just something personal I like to do." Her mouth, stained with more mulberry, is outlined in brown and glossed to really signal its shine. When Ingrid wears lighter colors, like the mustard mix at right, she lightens her face too, with gleaming yellow foundation high on the cheekbone. See how round Ingrid's face is? Her ploy (yours should be too) is to accent rather than try hide obvious features. She does this by brushing dark contour powder just under the jawline to emphasize her strong chin. Hair is curved gently to frame her face. Ingrid's legs are also round and quite muscular from years of ballet training, but she doesn't let that stop her from a bold wrap up with laces. All makeup and fashions, including green top opposite, by Biba. Hairstyles by Maury Hopson.

The Paco Rabanne influence

It would seem that the launch of Paco Rabanne's 1966 collection of 'Twelve Unwearable Dresses in Contemporary Materials' proved to be so popular (regardless of the title), that within a couple of years a girl could buy her own do-it-yourself  'unwearable' space age dress making kit for a mere $15!




                                                        Chip-an-Outfit Kits 1968
All it takes to be in the chips these days is perseverance and strong fingernails. The modernistic mini-dresses shown here are do-it-yourself designs made by linking together by hand hundreds of  perforated plastic discs with small metal rings. Instructions, plus rings and chips, enough for one design, come in a kit (by Mass Originals $15).

The tool-less no-sew technique results in see-through spaces in a chain-mail look pioneered by Paris' Paco Rabanne. The finished products, worn with white wigs (Reid and Meredith) and white tights, make a striking if somewhat strident entrance at summer parties.
