R.I.P. Helen Gurley Brown

I always found it difficult to relate to Cosmopolitan for a variety of reasons but I have to give Helen Gurley Brown props for her role in the sexual liberation movement and the 30+ years of amazing Scavullo covers that she brought to the magazine. I collect back issues of Cosmo (mostly for the covers) and now would be the opportune time to share them but I'm currently 3,000 miles away from New York. But in the meantime, here are three recent acquisitions that I posted on Instagram a few weeks ago. That bikini!

Helen Gurley Brown, who as the author of “Sex and the Single Girl” shocked early-1960s America with the news that unmarried women not only had sex but thoroughly enjoyed it — and who as the editor of Cosmopolitan magazine spent the next three decades telling those women precisely how to enjoy it even more — died on Monday in Manhattan. She was 90, though parts of her were considerably younger.
