Dorothy Parker: Caption Writer

"At 21, Dorothy Parker saw her first poem published in Vanity Fair. That led to a job writing captions at Vogue. She didn't much care about fashion, but she was inspired to draft some marvelously naughty copy: 'There was a little girl who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very very good, and when she was bad, she wore this divine nightdress of rose-colored mousseline de soie, trimmed with forthy Valenciennes lace."
