Swimsuits with Ava Gardner




Looking for a vintage bathing suit this summer? I'm sure Ava Gardner could give you some ideas. I love every swimsuit I've ever seen her in! Here are just a few. Which is your favorite?

The one in leopard print is especially amazing, simply b/c that was done around '52-'55-not too bad for a 30+ year old woman!-Jessica Meadows, Executive Director, Ava Gardner Museum, www.avagardner.org

I think the first is my favorite. She definitely rocks them all. Oh, the good old golden days...

Beautiful! I prefer her style to Marilyn's (reading a Marilyn biography now). Much more self-confident and stylish.

Fantastic swimsuits on a beautiful woman! I'm partial to the polka dots and leopard...

Oh, and the black swimsuit with the red buttons in your previous post is adorable!

I adore these vintage bathing suits. Toast.co.uk makes a really nice vintage inspired one, but I need to loose a little weight first *wink*

Positively gorgeous! I love all three, but I think the polka dot one edges out a little for me :)


Wishing you a gorgeous week, sweetie!

I love those classy swimsuits. I can't even count the number of times I've lost in ebay auctions trying to find the perfect modest cut suit. Thanks for posting! :)

Happy 4th of July from the UK.... Oh to be slim enough (and young enough) to wear those swimsuits. Have a good weekend....Hugs Chrissy x
