Ask Morgana 039: Lily Elsie

Lily Elsie was probably the most photographed young woman of the Edwardian era. In 1907 she starred in the London premiere of Franz Lehár’s The Merry Widow. There are probably thousands of images of her on the internet, but I have selected three for you. The first two show her beautiful profile. The third shows her dressed with a touch of masculine elegance.
