Inspired by the Folies Bergère of Paris, the Ziegfeld Follies was established by Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. and suggested by his then-wife Anna Held. The Follies were a series of extravagant revues, a mix between Broadway Shows and the more elaborate Vaudeville variety shows. The First Follies was produced in 1907 at the Roof Theater Jardin De Paris.
The Ziegfeld Follies were also famous for their display of many beautiful chorus girls, commonly known as Ziegfeld Girls, who danced up and down flights of stairs and stages in extremely elaborate costumes.
These showgirls followed on the heels of “Floradora Girls”. These beauties, decked out in gorgeous designs, gained many male admirers and became objects of popular adoration. The showgirls danced in complete synchronization and were the only act that was uniform in the Ziegfeld Follies.
This Headdress & Hand Plumes Kit is inspired by the gorgeous Silent Screen Queen & Ziegfeld Girl Mary Pickford.
