Beautiful Retro Portraits Of Celebrities And Not Only II


Clopatra Diane (“Clo”) de Mrode (27 September 1875 – 17 October 1966) was a French dancer. She became renowned for her glamour even more than for her dancing skills, and her image began appearing on postcards and playing cards. A particular new hairdo she chose to wear became the talk of Parisian women and was quickly adopted as a popular style for all. Alexandre Falguire sculpted The Dancer in her image, which can be seen in the Muse d’Orsay. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec did her portrait.
