Image Credits: All images are from Iranian magazine clippings (found mainly on the Persian blogs) or government promotional images which are now in the public domain after over 35 years (Iran copyright law, Article 16). Most of the images have been enhanced by adjusting the saturation, color balance, brightness and contrast. Dust specks and scratches were removed from some of the pictures. In addition, the covers have been resized so that the page loads faster. The magazines regularly featured celebrities or beauty contestants in their covers. European models were used for risque ads. Fashion models and shows were of a rarity. Women either wore the chador or modern apparel. Scarves were nearly non-existent in the urban areas.
