Charlotte, about Jean L.'s, entry yesterday:
 
"The model is Isabeli Fontana, photographed by Henrique Gendre for Glamour Brazil.
 
"I knew I had seen her before on Pettipond, and since I hate pictures of models with their legs clipped off,
I have sent the full picture again for those aficionados that have the same fetish."

From David S.:

The colorization is so feminine

 


On 17 April, Canna asked if anyone had seen
Vanna showing off her pettis on Wheel of Fortune.  Crinolyn graciously provides a
vidclip of the moment.

 

 


Joe A.:

 "Re the 2nd April  photo of Diana Dors, here are 2 more. They are from over 100 negatives that I obtained from my late uncle, who had been a press photographer. To my great dismay,
nearly all of the negatives were in terrible condition, many had been badly damaged from water after a fire  in his home in the early 1960s . A great pity, because most of the photos ,
from what I can see from the negatives, would have been truly breathtaking!. I have managed to “salvage” very few. Here, by the way, was what he told me about the photos:" 

In May 1958, I was asked to take some photographs of Diana Dors in her home. Diana at the time was enjoying great popularity in  England, the “British Monroe”. I had photographed
her before and she was a truly lovely person, who, despite her fame and success, was “Down to earth” and a delight to be with. 

When I arrived at her home, Diana was dressed casually, in a dark green blouse and a full black and white polka-dot skirt, the very full skirts being in fashion in the late fifties. Diana
offered me “a cup of tea”, and as she sat down on the settee opposite, I became “aware” that there were a lot of petticoats  beneath her skirt.  Most photographers were still using
black and white film, but I had started using colour.  The petticoats she was wearing were nylon net in a lovely shade of pink, with white frilly hems. Something I could see would
contrast beautifully with the black skirt, but really wouldn’t “show” on black and white film. 

I suggested that as I photograph her, she should “play” with the skirt,  so that the petticoats would be visible. Diana was very obliging, and I proceeded to take about 100 photographs
of her marvelous legs surrounded by petticoats, a very appealing sight!. Before I left Diana asked me to take one more shot, hitching up the skirt and petticoats just as I pressed the shutter!  Unfortunately, the photos were never used  for publication.
