Deirdre D’Agneau’s pictorial is only four pictures, one of them color, but they pack a punch. Her article explains she is an ex-ballerina because as she hit puberty she became top heavy, something you can check out for yourself. Her pictures have a sweet innocence often seen in the 60’s, with her cute smile, soft make up and ease in front of the camera. A quick search yielded me nothing in the way of information about her; I would be willing to bet she only modeled a few times. I’m gonna have to start scanning a new mag, as there’s only a few more short pictorials left in Gentlemen Yearbook. My goal is more content, to keep ya’ll warm this winter, so keep an eye out. Enjoy!
WOW A NEW MAGAZINE!
I literally didn’t realize how long it’s been since I have posted. I thought it had been like two months! The hiatus hasn’t been for lack of content, living in SF gives me plenty of vintage smut resources. Until all the smut stores are forced out in favor of luxury hi-rises of course.
Enough of me, on to Gentlemen Year Book 1966! A volume featuring their best for 1966 including some great pictures. As I always do here’s the cover and first pictorial. This first pictorial features Ivy Gentry, a young looking 18 year old, something they definitely highlight. Check out her adorable pictorial here! Enjoy!
An interesting thing happened recently. I’ll start with briefly mentioning my instagram account stacytrashphile, not just for a plug, but because its an integral part of the story. I found a picture of a pretty brown haired lady in a metallic gold bathing suit, matching cape and metallic gold heels on Tumblr and thought it was a pretty rad pic and posted it on instagram. The lady is sitting on what I thought was large gold coins, with a globe in the background. I captioned the pic “Dunno what it is but I like it” I wasn’t sure where the picture came from or the context, I was thinking maybe a 60’s sci-fi movie. Anyway a short time after posting it I received a message from a guy named Paris Zax who as it turns out is the lady in the picture’s son! Her name is Corinna Tsopei and after researching more about her the whole situation is so much more interesting than I originally thought. He sent me a bunch of pics of his mom from the 60’s, I will add them to the post of course.
Corinna is a beauty pageant veteran from Greece, who in 1964 won Miss Universe. She was the first Greek winner of Miss Universe, and according to my research she still helps judge from time to time. Along with her pageant efforts she appeared in several films/TV shows through out the 60’s.
Back to the picture I posted on instagram- apparently it’s a picture from her Miss Golden Globe win in 1967. I didn’t realize the prop is a stack of large gold film canisters, not coins, also representing The Golden Globes is a literal golden globe in the background, it all makes sense now! The whole situation is pretty awesome, I love that her son contacted me and I got to learn not only her name, but read more about her interesting and exciting background. The pictures featured below are the ones her son sent to me, my fave is the second picture, she’s stunning and definitely deserving of her Miss Universe title. Enjoy!
