The real secret to sexy? Leaving a little to the imagination…
Just ask Alfred Mugford. The photo below, taken in 1941 in Waikiki, Hawaii, was his favorite photo of his then fiancé, Margery. Margery “Muggy” Mugford was a swimwear, lingerie and sportswear model at McEnerney’s department store in Wakiki. She went on to open her own swimwear shop and modeling agency. A mere five years after this photo was taken, “the world’s smallest bathing suit,” the bikini, debuted in France. Forget mystery, the rest is history….
“This was my grandfather’s favorite picture of my grandmother. It was taken shortly before they were married. He was 22-years old. She was 18. It represents who she was: beautiful, strong, athletic, independent, confident and sexy. She was a remarkable person.” -Cori Redford
