Lily Elsie reading.
Elsie (1886–1962) was a popular English actress and singer during the Edwardian era, best known for her starring role in the hit London premiere of Franz Lehár’s operetta The Merry Widow.
“Perhaps her face is nearer to that of the Venus de Milo in profile than to any other famed beauty. There are no angles to be found about her any place… Nature never made a more brilliant success in the beauty business than she did with Lily Elsie. Everyone agrees that Lily Elsie has the most kissable mouth in all England… she possesses the Cupid’s bow outline with the ends curving upward delicately, all ready for smiles… Strangely enough, the women of the land were among her most devoted admirers.”
