EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the enchanting moment when Margaret Whigham, later known as Mrs. Charles Sweeny and the Duchess of Argyll, transformed into the ethereal figure of Astrae, the Star-Maiden, for the Olympian Party at Claridges on 5 March 1935. The event, held in aid of the Greater London Fund for the Blind, was a grand spectacle that showcased an entertainment of dancing, singing, and orchestral accompaniment, featuring various Olympian personalities. Margaret Whigham, a prominent socialite of the 1930s, dazzled the crowd in this stunning, star-studded costume, embodying the essence of a goddess. The intricately designed dress, adorned with celestial motifs and shimmering stars, perfectly captured the essence of Astrae, the Greek goddess of the dawn and the rising star. The Olympian Party was a highlight of the social calendar, attracting the most fashionable and influential personalities of the time. Margaret Whigham, who would later become the Duchess of Argyll, was a regular attendee of such glamorous events. This photograph serves as a testament to her captivating presence and her ability to captivate the hearts of all who beheld her, whether as a socialite or as a goddess. The 1930s were a time of opulence and extravagance, and this photograph encapsulates the essence of the era, with its fancy costumes, goddesses, and personalities. The image of Margaret Whigham as Astrae, the Star-Maiden, is a beautiful reminder of a bygone era, filled with charm, elegance, and wonder.
