"She was a beauty - a Professional Beauty. Encores Sundays at 9pm, Beginning June 29 Channel 13 PBS, Masterpiece Theatre." 

This beautiful jewel-toned vintage poster advertises a PBS mini-series about Lille Langtry, a British socialite in the 1800s. She was a "professional beauty" known for her rise in social status due to her good looks, rather than money or prestige. The start of celebrity culture is attributed to professional beauties. She had a fascinating life, intertwined with that of Oscar Wilde's and the Prince of Wales, among others. This poster is sponsored by Mobil Oil, adding a more modern touch to the print. 

Artist: Ivan Chermayeff
