Known for his elaborate jewelled eye makeup featured in Vogue throughout  the sixties, Pablo Manzoni was then the creative director for Elizabeth Arden.  In 1966, Time Magazine heralded him as "Manhattan's newest status symbol - a necessary part of the well-dressed sophisticate's beauty routine. Said Pablo, "I have never seen an ugly woman."
