Les Reines de la Mode




I spent a long time trying to find out who this young lady was. Perhaps a Can Can dancer around 1907 at the Moulin Rouge? Anyway, she was beautiful enough to be photographed by Henri Manuel. Here is another of his postcards and a brief biography

If she were to be a Can Can Dancer, there would have been the need to find some system for her "coiffure" to stay in place. And the hat too.

Peter: I see what you mean; perhaps she had her photgraph taken on her day off!

Hi Anji,
I love the dresses of that time but not so with the hair. You could actually hide a bird in there. :o)

She is very pretty. Natural, as women should be.

Titania: I must have deleted my reply! My arms ache thinking of fiddling with all that hair...
