1930s Socialite Countess di Zoppola

This is Countess di Zoppola in 1935. And this image got me interested to find out more info about her. Turns out she was formerly known as Edith Mortimer, and her friend Cole Porter called her Tookie. 
Edith Mortimer 1914

A Newport socialite named Miss Edith Mortimer married Count Mario di Zoppola, an Italian aviator, in 1919, at her parents' country home in Wheatley Hills. Her mother was Eleanor Roosevelt's aunt. The Count and Countess di Zoppola divorced in Reno in 1929.

Here she is strolling with Captain Alistair Mackintosh in Palm Beach, 1939. Look at those pants. My how times have changed. I still love the lounging swimsuit shot though, it looks wonderful with that skirt!

These are fantastic! Thanks for posting them! I particularly love the last image, since it's such a great shot of the difference between the rise on pant then and now!
