Cléo de Mérode, French Dancer Of The Belle Époque

I made this digi years ago.  I think in 2012. I think she was so very pretty.

From Wikipedia;

Cleo’ de Mérode became renowned for her glamour even more than for her dancing skills, and her image began appearing on such things as postcards and playing cards.

Cleo’ de Mérode became renowned for her glamour even more than for her dancing skills, and her image began appearing on such things as postcards and playing cards. A particular new hairstyle she chose to wear became the talk of Parisian women and was quickly adopted as a popular style for all. Her fame was such that Alexandre Falguière sculpted The Dancer in her image, which today can be seen in the Musée d’Orsay.[6] In 1895, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec did her portrait, as would Charles Puyo, Alfredo Muller, and Giovanni Boldini. Her picture was taken by some of the most illustrious photographers of the day, including Félix Nadar.

Cleo’ de Mérode continued to dance until her early fifties, when she retired to the seaside resort of Biarritz in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques département of France. She then taught ballet before retiring in 1965 at 90 years old.
