What Do Discerning Men Like in a Woman?

To back up her beliefs, Arlene Dahl writes, “I’ve interviewed hundreds of discerning males on the subject of women and beauty — stars of motion pictures, Broadway and television, statesmen, noblemen, businessmen, and members of international society. Each described his list of qualifications for the ideal woman. They may run the gamut in type from the intellectual to the athletic, but—without exception — every man put one quality above all others in describing his ideal. That one essential attribute which all men seek and admire in a woman is FEMININITY.”

Here is a tiny sampling of the dozens of quotes from celebrities you’ll find in Arlene Dahl’s fabulous book . . .

Kirk Douglas: “The first thing I look for in a woman is warmth — femininity. It’s got nothing to do with a pretty face.”

David Niven: “Humor is important. The most beautiful woman is a bore without that.”

Louis Jourdan: “A truly feminine woman should always retain a little air of mystery.”

Montgomery Clift: “The thing that bugs me is the average woman’s complete ignorance of the functional purpose of cosmetics, which is to supplement, not conceal.”

Richard Burton: “I like curves and poise and good carriage and clothes that show them off. Clothes should fit the outline of the body not disguise it.”

You’ll also find thoughtful remarks from such men as Burt Lancaster, Lawrence Harvey, Jose Iturbi, Danny Kaye, Marlon Brando, James Mason, Robert Taylor, Robert Ricci, Peter Ustinov, Noel Coward, Hugh O’Brian, Cary Grant, and many more!

Arlene Dahl is the internationally-famed motion picture, television and stage star who also writes a thrice-weekly syndicated beauty column which reaches 30,000,000 readers. Known as one of the most beautiful women in the world, she has always been eager to help other women achieve their full potential of feminine appeal. Now, in her new book she tells you how to enhance your femininity to become beautiful and charming in your own unique way.

    I’m not sure what’s more confusing here: the idea that Arlene Dahl is answering questions under a book entitled, “Always Ask a Man”, or that Montgomery Clift is pontificating on feminine allure.
