In the days before Botox, power cleanses and spin classes, women’s fitness and beauty regimes pursued a very different ideal. The emphasis was on classic glamor and a fuller, womanly body shape, and between the 1920s and 1950s women everywhere looked to Hollywood’s most stylish and iconic beauties for inspiration.

Hollywood Diet and Fitness: Vintage Secrets reveals exactly what went into creating the looks made famous by the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly, detailing the eating habits, exercise routines, and style tips that helped usher in a golden age of silver-screen sophistication and still inspire us today.

Packed with beautiful photographs and vintage imagery, this book is an entertaining and accessible look at our timeless pursuit of the body beautiful.

Review:


'A lovely little retro read!' HOTHOT Magazine

'I found this book so fascinating that I couldn’t put it down and read it in two sittings.' Catherine, vintage-frills.com

'It’s a real treat to look at and not too heavy on your tummy!' Glamourdaze

Hollywood Diet and Fitness is a fun and quick read, but there is an extensive bibliography and the book is well researched I also loved that I had never seen many of the photos before. So many times we see the same old famous celebrity photographs over and over. Slater did a great job in locating pictures that are not so often seen.’ Lizzie, The Vintage Traveler

'If you want a quick fun overview of the period and a beautifully produced book I would recommend this one.' Charlotte, Ramblings of an Elfpire
