Jay V. Jay was the joint pseudonym of writers Virginia Vincent and Jeannette Kienkintveld and artist Laura Johnson, who co-created the newspaper strip "Modish Mitzi" in the 1920s. The strip served as a graphic fashion column, advising readers of contemporary trends. The character of Mitzi was based on Johnson herself, and her friends Polly and Adelaide were based on Vincent and Kienkintveld respectively.
