Rose Dolores, Ziegfeld girl in peacock plume dress with feathers spread out
Photograph by Alfred Cheney Johnston, 1920s
From the Library of Congress website: Always known simply as “Dolores,” she became one of the most famous of Ziegfeld’s show girls, appearing in editions of his Follies and Midnight Frolics. She is one of many Ziegfeld girls photographed by Alfred Cheney Johnston. This photograph is particularly significant as a record of a spectacular design. It was in the Frolics that Dolores wore this white satin costume with pearls and an enormous fan towering over her statuesque figure.

Wow, these are so fun! I wish I could find a pair these days. I wonder what color they were.
