Esther Williams, an American competitive swimmer and  movie actress who left us this past week June 6th, she was 91 years old.  I remember watching her films as a child and was simply memorized on how she made swimming look ABSOLUTELY beautiful.

Kore Swim, founded in 2011 by sisters Jessica and Nicole Tracy.  Their vision on celebrating a woman’s curves is shown in their designs and very stylish. www.korewear.com/collections/2013-products.

So as we think about the late beautiful Esther Williams, let’s also say a thank  you for her contribution to the art of swimming, for being the reason synchronizing swimming  is an Olympic competitive sport today and undeniably making the swimsuit a fashion statement in its own category!

Her stepson Lorenzo Lamas tweeted she was “The best swim teacher and soul mom.”[92] Her friend Annabeth Gish also tweeted a tribute, writing that Esther Williams was “An elegant, gracious movie star, legend and neighbor”.  Film historian Leonard Maltin called her “a major, major star, a tremendous box office attraction.” For her contribution to the motion-picture industry, Williams has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1500 Vine Street.
