Lily Elsie

Imagine how restrictive it would be to be dressed like this all the time - beautiful as it is - and to have to sew and learn languages and be told what it is a woman can and can't do - (Lily Elsie)

Lily Elsie (1886-1962) Simple headband and deceptively simple looking curls. I'm guessing I could do this with my long hair but I'll have to get better with bobby pins!

Lily Elsie was a popular actress and singer in Edwardian days. A century later, thanks to the Internet, she has been rediscovered. Her dreamy beauty was captured in scores of photographs. She posed in many beautiful dresses, but none so frequently as the one seen here. I haven't been able to discover who designed the gown (although one source claims it was Lucile) or what color it was, but that just sets us free to imagine.
