"You might have heard of the Teddy Boys, a 1950s rebel youth subculture in Britain characterized by an unlikely style of dress inspired by Edwardian dandies fused with American rock’n roll. But an important sub-subculture of the Teddy Boys, an unlikely female element, has remained all but invisible from historical records. Meet The Teddy Girls." Fascinating article on this fashionable girl gang.

EVELYN NESBIT --Known to millions before her 16th birthday in 1900, Evelyn was the most photographed woman of her era, an iconic figure who set the standard for female beauty. Her jealous millionaire husband, Harry K. Thaw, killed her lover, Stanford White, the architect of much of New York. She found herself at the center of the Crime of the Century and the star of a great courtroom drama.

1920 S Actresses | Barbara Stanwyck: From Early Ashes to Movie Star
She wore too much makeup, and she drove a car. A cigarette dangling from her acrimonious pout seemed to be a permanent fixture and you never knew whose bed you’d find her in. She consumed far too many cocktails, she listened to jazz music and she worried about little other than perfecting her status as a social butterfly. She was brash, she was bold and most of all, she despised all the social norms set in place by the generations who had gone before her. She was the flapper.

"Roseraie" Dress, Jeanne Lanvin (French, 1867–1946) for the House of Lanvin (French, founded 1889): spring/summer 1923, French, silk. "Jeanne Lanvin was apprenticed to a milliner and a dressmaker before opening her own millinery shop in 1889. She expanded into dressmaking when her clients began asking for the ensembles in which she adorned her daughter, Marguerite di Pietro (1897-1958). Her style embodied the femininity of youth in a most modern way with meticulous and relatively sparse surface embellishments and robe de style silhouettes, which could be worn by women of all ages. Lanvin's aptitude can be seen through her house's 1920s expansion into fur, lingerie, men's wear, household goods and perfume. She even had the forethought to open her own dye factory which produced the inimitable 'Lanvin blue.' The longevity of the House of Lanvin can be credited to her attentive management and design standards from its inception. The ribbon flower head designs of "Roseraie" are reminiscent of the floral designs of Art Nouveau architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) and his wife Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh (1865-1933). Lanvin's version was originally created as a swatch at one of her embroidery studios in 1918-1919, according to Dean L. Merceron in his book "Lanvin." It was later used in this latticework to suggest a sense of youthful beauty evocative of designs at the 1925 Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. Lanvin's ability to manipulate applied ribbonwork, such as this, is one which she utilized continually to great success."
