Ziegfeld Girls ~ c.1926
1918 portrait by de Meyer of Ziegfeld's top showgirl, Dolores. She was six feet tall, and had been a mannequin for designer Lucille, where Ziegfeld's wife, Billie Burke, bought clothing. The story goes that Billie told Ziggy about Dolores and he persuaded the British beauty to work for him. She paraded around the stage with the perfect "Ziegfeld walk", and was his top-paid showgirl for a while. She eventually married a millionaire in NYC.
