Would you buy this brand?


Harley Davidson, Mary Kay, Lipton Tea – the brands are iconic, but would you know the faces that started them? Take a guess at this picture.

If you couldn’t pick out Manolo Blahnik is a crowd, this Life Magazine pictorial is for you. It has 33 not-so-classic faces behind 33 classic brands and not only will their looks surprise you, their stories will too.
