Ziegfeld Girls - Vintage Beauties

Vintage photos of the famous beauties of the Ziegfeld Follies revue (1907-1931). These girls were known for always being decked out in the most elaborate and beautiful costumes. The costumes were often made by designers such as Erté, Lady Duff Gordon, and Ben Ali Haggi. The next morning the talk in New York would always be the ensembles. Some of the real mystique of the Ziegfeld girls comes from the provocative photography of Alfred Cheney Johnston.

Billie Burke - C. 1910s wife of impresario Florenz Ziegfeld, had a long stage career. She is most famous for being Glinda the Good Witch of the North in the The Wizard of Oz.

Louise Brooks, who would later go on to Hollywood, was a featured dancer for the Follies in 1925.
