In 1949, the US actress and global star Rita Hayworth spent part of her honeymoon on Mozambique Island with her husband, Prince Aga Khan, head of the Ismaili faith. A 16-year old French photographer living in the area at the time, Jean Charles Pinheira, had recently received a camera and set about producing his first photo reportage with photos of the couple.

An exhibition of Pinehira’s 4 photos of Rita Hayworth in Lumbo and Mozambique Island was held in Ruby Guesthouse Ilha.
