The Caroline Munro Archive: The Daily Telegraph Magazine, September 22, 1967

by John Scoleri

I'm back again with yet another rarity from my Caroline Munro collection, a continuing series here on bare•bones.

50 years ago today, an 18 year-old Caroline Munro was featured in an article on "The Success of British Beauty" in The Daily Telegraph Magazine. Alongside a brief write-up were 7 lovely photos, included below.

The Daily Telegraph Magazine 
Number 155
September 22, 1967
Pages 26-27

Caroline Munroe (sic) 18, is a model girl and a small-part player in films, including Casino Royale. She evolved her own make-up techniques. Her private-life make-up usually consists of bright orange or pink lipstick, masses of mascara on the upper and lower lashes, eye shadow, and nothing else whatsoever. 

Off-duty, she particularly dislikes wearing a make-up which labels her unmistakably as a model because she finds that the top girls avoid such obvious professionalism. 

“What the top girls have learned to do is to look pretty and to walk well, but there is nothing gimmicky about them,” she said.

For a demonstration in sheer style, she admires Rita Tushingham and Jean Shrimpton. 

Watch for more Caroline Munro rarities here on bare•bones, and be sure to check out the prior entries in this series!
