Gypsy Rose Lee & Lingerie

I found the following images after reading this great post on Gypsy Rose Lee, film and culture at Kitsch Slapped. (Please go read it — it’s awesome!)

These photos were taken by George Skadding, for Life magazine. Here, the dancer poses with all the layers of her costume.

Life description reads, “Dancer Gypsy Rose Lee (R) designing costume for girls to wear during her performance, adding another layer of lace on panties to avoid censorship.”
