This category consists of 162 photographs, covering the period from 1952 to 1988. Older photographs have to do with the first beauty pageants organised in Greece and the performance of the winning beauties at corresponding international events. Newspaper photoreportage was quite extensive, which indicates the interest of the public in such events.
Furthermore, in the 1960s and 1970s, international figures who were often the “target” of photographers stand out, such as Frank Sinatra, Maria Callas, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Virna Lisi, while there is no lack of royal photoreportage, capturing Greek and international aristocrats at formal events and in moments of fun at luxury resorts. Most of the photographs, however, relate to the much talked about marriage of Aristotle Onassis to Jackie Kennedy, a social event that drew the attention of the international press.
