Playmate of the Month May 1955 - Marguerite Empey

MARGUERITE EMPEY Miss May 1955

Hal Adams photographed Marguerite, a California model and nudist, in what turned out to be the first of two appearances as a Playmate. Author Gay Talese interviewed her – under her married name, Diane Webber – for his landmark study of the sexual revolution, “Thy Neighbor’s Wife,” published in 1980. Marguerite’s second centerfold, shot by Russ Meyer, was published in February 1956; in 1958, she starred on the cover of the very first Playmate Calendar, which sold for fifty cents – then the same price as the magazine.
