It’s Friday! It’s Retro Revelry Day!

In memory of Esther Williams, who passed away yesterday, this Retro Revelry is dedicated to one of my favorite mid-century icons of beauty and grace.

I grew up loving Esther Williams. In fact, when I was in college and worked as a lifeguard at the city pool, I would imitate her moves – popping up out of the water with a radiant smile – in order to get the “water babies” comfortable dunking their heads. It always worked! And those movies…so unique and glamorous – appropriate for the era! Read more about Esther and watch movie clips on the New York Times site.
