Welcome to Vintage Paparazzi.

Vintage Paparazzi Star Fashions



This is it: how to look stunning in the sun. Secret? A swimsuit that’s new . . . exciting . . . and fits like a dream. This summer, anyone can look like a movie mermaid. Now there are suits (from $3 up!) that are miracles of fit and allure.

New suits have built-in secrets to give them that mermaid fit. One has a real, built-in girdle. Another, a separate Lastex pantie. Some have their own body-beautiful bras. Many do it with strong, light-weight Lastex; shirred, elasticized cotton; intricate panels to mold you in the right places. All the new silhouettes are good—and great for your figure!

Here, some of Hollywood’s loveliest lassies show you how to improve your place in the sun!
