EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the radiant beauty and charisma of Margaret Whigham, a celebrated debutante and it girl of the 1930s, as she was affectionately known as 'The Precious One' during her appearance in the Lovelies Parade at the Gay Party at the Cafúáné Paris on 15 December 1932. At just 19 years old, Whigham was already a popular figure in high society circles, with her striking features, captivating personality, and exquisite taste in jewellery and fashion. The Gay Party was a glamorous event that brought together the most elite and fashionable members of Parisian society. Whigham's presence in the Lovelies Parade, a procession of beautiful young women, further solidified her status as a socialite and a symbol of elegance and sophistication. In this photograph, Whigham is seen adorned in a stunning ensemble, with a dazzling necklace and earrings that add to her allure and enhance her natural beauty. Her radiant smile and confident demeanor exude an air of charm and grace, making her a true standout among her peers. Whigham's life was marked by many milestones and controversies. She would later marry Charles Sweeny, an American businessman, and then the Duke of Argyll, becoming one of the most scandalous figures in British society when her divorce case made headlines in 1963. But in this moment, captured in time, she is simply 'The Precious One,' a young woman at the height of her beauty and popularity, shining brightly in the Parisian social scene.
