Debbie Reynolds 1953. Virgil Apger for MGM.
OK, note the gorgeous swimsuit on Esther Williams. Then in the next photo of Ava Gardner one year later, the same outfit is called a 'costume' and made more to look like a photo taken in the boudoir with lingerie.

Marilyn Monroe. Lauren Bacall and Betty Grable, 1953. Photo: Frank Powolny, for 20th Century Fox. Costumes by Charles Lemaire. Publicity shot for How to Marry a Millionaire.
Marilyn must have loved these shoes. She has been photographed many times with her in them.
I'll post some more glamour phot's of the women screen stars tomorrow.
