The Beauty of Retrospect: Catherine Roberts Week, Part One

Who's that wearing those fashionable eyeglasses?

It's Catherine Roberts, of course, fashion and beauty model extraordinaire, and my exclusive subject for this last full week of February, not to mention a perennial subject on this blog since I first featured her in December 2009.

Catherine Roberts is mostly known for modeling beauty products, but she also has a special knack for modeling mundane products like eyeglasses, as in this ad for Silhouette glasses (made by Avant-Garde Optics) from 1977, and making them look interesting. :-) 

In fact, her portfolio includes ads for cars, alcoholic beverages and frozen dinners.  Yeah, I'm still looking for those . . . :-)
