Socialites in the Summer


The photos in this post I'm about to show you are the kind of thing you love to hate while sitting at your desk when it's hot outside and the air conditioning's broken…
Photographer Slim Aarons, a contributor to LIFE and Holiday magazine, made a career of taking pictures of rich (white) people - jesters and celebrities, many of whom he was friends with - on holiday, or as he liked to call it, capturing “attractive people who were doing attractive things in attractive places.” 



















His Poolside Gossip picture (above) is probably his most famous and was recreated by the New York Times for the 45th Palm Springs Modernist Week.
