Lila Leeds was a Starlet at both the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Warner Brothers studios.
She often appeared at lavish Hollywood parties…most times escorted by her steady beau Stephen Crane.
“One of the things of interest that she has done is her attendance at the ‘Don the Beachcomber’ party for which she was draped by Oleg Cassini (Gene Tierney’s husband).
She appeared in a fur coat with accessories…the invitations called for either a sarong or a bathing suit…and the guests gave her a good teasing when she walked into the room.
She shed the coat however, and there was a narrow top to the costume…she was dressed according to the rules.”
