constantstreamofdebauchery: Don’t be nervous, darling. You’re beautiful. Perhaps too late for my target era of Before the War for this blog collection due to the suspenders, but how often do you get a handsome young vintage chap in stockings turn up on your dash, I couldn’t resist. Back to Edwardians and earlier next time, you have my word.

Though the Trilby hat - and the amateur photography as a hobby - may place this a little outside the pre-war era I aim to collect here, I couldn’t resist including this delightfully frivolous pucker-up for the camera! I suspect the box he’s holding is the case he carries it in, proving this is from the time of smaller more affordable photographic equipment, for the enthusiast rather than the professional.

This is Barbette. Acrobat, Drag Queen, contemporary of Man Ray, Jean Cocteau, Josephine Baker, Picasso, and at one time the toast of Paris in the 1920s. Born in 1899 in Texas. After touring with Vaudeville shows around the nation, he moved to Paris and quickly became immensely popular, noted for taking his wig off at the act, thereby breaking the illusion.

Jacqueline Susann was an American novelist. Her most famous work is Valley of the Dolls. For decades, rumors have persisted that Susann was bisexual. The rumors began around 1945, when Susann appeared in A Lady Says Yes with Carole Landis. The two reportedly had an affair and some claim that Susann modeled the Jennifer North character in her novel, Valley of the Dolls, after Landis. According to Susann's biographer, the affair had begun when Landis bought her earrings and a fur coat.

Jean Acker was an American actress with a career dating from the silent film era through the 1950s. She was perhaps best known as the estranged wife of Rudolph Valentino. After divorcing Valentino in 1923, Acker met Chloe Carter, a former Ziegfeld Follies girl with whom she would remain for the rest of her life. The couple owned an apartment building together in Beverly Hills. Acker died of natural causes in 1978 and is buried next to Carter in the Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California.
