Esther Williams

Farewell, Esther Williams

Yesterday I saw that Esther Williams passed away at 91. Athlete, actress, business woman…she managed to balance many different interests and enterprises long before the current round of  models/actresses/singers/clothing-jewelry-makeup designers. Her swimwear line is still going strong today. I want the 2-piece classic sheath in hibiscus peach. Striking and timeless.

A wonderful interview with Diane Sawyer from 2007–still graceful.

Thank you, Esther Williams, for your combination of beauty, brains, and business savvy. Godspeed.
