Janet Leigh in the late 1940s. What the archive doesn't tell you is that this suit is by Cole of California. The Cole of California ad below shows the 'Guilded Lily' and dates to 1951. Hmmm, I'm wondering if this was a publicity shot or for use in marketing the swimsuit.
The swimsuit is made of white lastex and 24K gold. Clearly Janet was wearing something spectacular and worth it's weight in gold prices today!
