French actress and courtesan Jacqueline Forzane. A style icon of the years immediately prior to the Great War, Cecil Beaton described her as 'an incandescent blonde' who exuded the 'rarefied aura of Parma violets'.
To protect their clothes, both men and women wore loose topcoats of leather, or dusters. Dusters ranged from simple linen garments to silk coats accented with pretty trimming, but unlined linen dusters with no trim were the easiest to wash.
