This renowned paradise catered to Hollywoods affluent and reached international acclaim as an indulgent playground for the rich and famous, as well as a silverhaired and well-heeled clientele. It was a world of swimming pools awash with bobbing beehives, martini-fueled parties, and relaxed golf sets, all unfolding against the desert backdrop of this California oasis. While there, Doisneau took hundreds of photographs, twenty-three of which were published in the magazine.
