Goodbye Helen Gurley Brown

She was an icon of an era – the 60’s, free love, women’s rights and open sexuality. Best known as the editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and the author of Sex and the Single Girl. The book became the mantra of a generation, stayed on the bestseller list for over a year and was made into a movie starring Natalie Wood, Tony Curtis, Henry Fonda, and Lauren Becall – superstars of the day.

Helen Gurley Brown’s personal life logo: “Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere” was emblazoned on the public conscious and thousands of posters, shirts and women’s bedroom walls. Ms. Brown passed away Monday at the age of 90. After a storied and sometimes controversial career, her words, her brashness, and her humor will be missed.
