In the spread called "Beauty in a Bag, What it Takes, What It Makes", she modeled looks that any woman could create out of her bag. The mag determined that a woman's bag should contain 8 basic beauty products, some perfume, a comb, purse-size hairspray, cleansing tissues, an emery board and 2 safety pins. These were the staples any woman needed to ensure that her look stays fresh all day and all night.
