Vintage Beauties: Betty Brosmer

smallest-waist - Vintage Beauties: Betty Brosmer

At request, the return of our Vintage Beauties posts!

Name: Betty Brosmer and later, Betty Weider

Also known as: ‘The girl with the impossible waist”

Height: 5’5” / 165 cm

Age today: 81

Occupation: pin-up model, author, trainer

Also known for:

  • being the co-founder of Shape Magazine
  • being the wife of famous bodybuilder Joe Weider

Before the age of photo editing, Betty stood out with her unique proportions depicting an hourglass shape with an impossible waist, measuring only 18 inches / 46 cm. But although Betty’s shape was admired by many and the beautiful blonde had a great career as a pin-up model (and later as a trainer and author), there was a lot of speculation at the time (1950s-1960s) regarding the methods Betty used in order to achieve her hourglass shape. While some say that corset training played a role in transforming her body, others say that the model opted for a waist reduction surgery, a procedure that alters the shape of the ribcage (and moves internal organs in the process).

Zooey Deschanel: “Daisy Dukes are not for people over 30”

zooey-cover - Zooey Deschanel: "Daisy Dukes are not for people over 30"

34 year-old Zooey Deschanel is featured in the current issue of Lucky Magazine, where she talks about style and dressing for your shape – From Lucky:

Dressing for your body:

“If you look at anyone with great style—Jackie Onassis, Audrey Hepburn—they have certain silhouettes that they don’t really stray from. It’s not like Audrey Hepburn was running around in a bunch of giant shoulder-padded dresses. I have narrow shoulders and a small rib cage, so some things just swallow me up and make me look frumpy.”

Fashion don’ts:

You won’t catch her in blousy ’80s cuts (“not flattering, in my opinion”) or certain colors. “I hate to say it, but chartreuse is an ugly color—it just is,” she says, appearing momentarily concerned that she might alienate some militant faction of chartreuse constituents. And forget about anything too revealing. “Daisy Dukes are not for people over 30. I’m just going to go out on a limb and say that right now.”

Tracy Anderson: “There needs to be more emphasis on all different body shapes”

165584449_10 - Tracy Anderson: "There needs to be more emphasis on all different body shapes"

On how she is PRO body diversity:

“One of the things I can’t stand the most is all the fashion magazines where all the women look exactly the same. I train everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Gwyneth Paltrow, you know, and I’m a totally different body type. I think there needs to be more emphasis in art and entertainment and fashion on all different body shapes.”

On whether her New York clients skip workouts during Fashion Week:

“I don’t think anybody would skip a workout this week. They’re more like in the gym early, to get their sweat before they do hair or makeup or anything like that. This is not a week to skip the gym. I taught a master class this morning and it was like packed to the walls.”

… says 38 year-old celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson.
