I was confused about the 1997 part until I clicked on the link and saw the picture was from 1957. Apparently we were supposed to be doing interplanetary travel in cotton knit spacesuits within 40 years. I then surmised (incorrectly) that this was a reaction to the USSR's 1957 launch of Sputnik, but that happened later.

Do a Google image search on Ms. O'Day. She apparently spent most of the 1950s in a minimally clad state.

I'm thinking about Steely Dan's "Tomorrow's Girls."

They're landing on the Jersey beaches
Their engines make the white sand swirl
The heat is so intense
Earth men have no defense
Against tomorrow's girls
