Current mood: flirty
Carole Lombard invariably looks alluring poolside, and the image above is no exception. It’s the cover of the August 1932 Mexican magazine Belleza, which focused on entertainment and cultural issues. (There is a current magazine by that name — it even has a Facebook page — but I don’t know if it shares lineage with the 1932 publication.)
I’ve never seen that specific image of Lombard before, so I don’t know whether it was taken specifically for Belleza or simply was a Paramount pic the magazine appropriated. Carole was wearing her share of two-piece swimsuits about that time, as these photos make clear:
The magazine measures 8″ x 9 3/4″; it is said to be in good condition with minor use and wear along with a few creases.
