How times change. Take this image from a recently-released archive at UCLA showing a computer-created rendering of "Miss Formula", the 'perfect female'". Published in the LA Times in July 1964, "Miss Formula"'s curvaceous (and presumably, life-size) ideal has, of course, morphed into something a little more boyish and a lot more emaciated. Something kinda like the taut little brunette presenting her for display!

Miss Formula, up close and personal, after the jump.
