Leopard Prints in Vintage Swimwear

My blog post from yesterday on Jayne got me thinking I should do a post on Leopard prints in swimwear. The exotic animal print, or leopard print specifically, has been used throughout the ages, even as early as the 1920s. Today I bring you a bevy of beauties all kittened up. Meow!

Jayne Mansfield
Monica Vitti
1942 Alexis Smith
Elizabeth Taylor


1955 Anita Ekberg & Mara Corday

Marilyn 1955

1940s Paulette Goddard
1953 Cole of California Designed by Margit Fellegi

1984 Bill Blass

 1961 Cole of California

1953 Vanity Fair

These last two photos may surprise you at just how early leopard was being used in 'beachwear'.
