She was the hottest beach babe of the ’40s and ’50s
Esther Williams died this week at 91, but she contributed quite a bit to the world before she went. News of her death made us take a walk down memory lane, or memory beach, in her case.
Williams was a synchronized swimmer turned actress, and apparently Hollywood studio executives tailored movies just to show off her body in a swimsuit. Good job guys.
In honor of Williams, take a look at some pics of the beach bimbo of yesteryear. Sure, the fashion was less flattering back then, but try to picture her in a pair of booty shorts and a tight pink tank top after a few weeks on an all kale diet, and you have the modern hottie.
