After it's very successful launch of leopard print lingerie in 1952, Vanity Fair introduced the black and white zebra print pieces in the spring of 1954. This ad from June 1954, shows the model wearing just a pair of briefs with her back turned to the camera. It is one of the most striking Vanity Fair ads I've ever seen.
The zebra print came in several pieces including a bra, pettiskirt slip, dressing gown, lounging pajamas and a peignoir set (now shown). I think they're all wonderful. How about you?
