Celery Bikini

Another plant-themed bikini. This time it's Evelyn Hayes who, as "Celery Queen" of National City, CA in 1939, got to wear a celery bikini.

Though, again, it wouldn't yet have been called a bikini. More like a celery hula skirt and top.

So were Adam and Eve actually just shown celebrating the fig harvest?

Surely, there is a bikini made from melons.

It's clear why this lovely lady was chosen Celery Queen. Look out for hungry rabbits, though!

(Or better yet, bring on the hungry rabbits!)

For the ladies of WU, this is some male attire.

I see her swimming around in a Bloody Mary.

How very like, and yet unlike, Josephine Baker.

Seems like a very weird photographic perspective. Either that, or she's related to the Jolly Green Giant.

Technically, it can't be *called* a bikini before 1946. 😉
