I don’t care what kind of bathing suit you paint—just make her look hot.
We’re guessing some underpaid artist was tasked with painting a bikini atop Diane Webber’s nude body, and after the acid kicked in he produced this concept that looks like all her naughty bits are on fire. Luckily it’s just an acetate overlay, and you lift the top layer to get original Webber in her altogether, at right. If it looks familiar that's because we showed you this exact print in August without the overlay as an A. Scheer pin-up, and as part of a drive-in calendar. So we've pretty much milked this image for all it's worth. We’ve also shown you a few other overlays, for instance here and here, and noted that we think the practice began with the déshabillables of the French magazine Paris-Hollywood. All those other examples are nice, but for pure weirdness this one wins.
