Beauty History of Glendale Heights, IL

In 1992, 21-year-old Glendale Heights resident Leilani Magnussen was crowned Miss Illinois USA. A senior at Southern Illinois University, the beauty pageant winner was awarded $1,000, a full-length fur coat and a trip to Cancun.

An exhibition at the DuPage County Historical Museum showcased how much local fashion has changed over the past 150 years. Not only has there been changing styles for hats, gloves and jewelry, but shopping itself has changed. Fashion trends were once sourced from mail-order catalogs, dry goods stores and the local department stores of Marshall Field’s, Sears Roebuck and Co. and Montgomery Ward.

Men’s makeup styles are currently on-trend, but former Glendale Heights resident Billy Corgan has been making bold makeup choices for decades. The alt-rocker is now partnered with fashion designer Chloe Mendel, bringing even more style-focus to their household.
