Lily Elsie was a popular actress and singer in Edwardian days. A century later, thanks to the Internet, she has been rediscovered. Her dreamy beauty was captured in scores of photographs. She posed in many beautiful dresses, but none so frequently as the one seen here. I haven't been able to discover who designed the gown (although one source claims it was Lucile) or what color it was, but that just sets us free to imagine.
