young Lantelme

According to the article in Le Theatre # 303, Genevieve Lantelme was born in 1882. So she’s 20 years on this photo from Les Modes, July 1902.

Les Modes caption: Mademoiselle Lantelme, du theatre de Gymnase. Robe princesse et corselet en mousseline de soie avec incrustations de guipure rehaussée de roses de Saxe en chiffon de soie, decolleté carré garni de guipure, manches a double bouffant; chapeau de tulle noir avec guirlandes de roses.

It’s one of few early photos where we can see her wearing earrings. On the later photos she doesn’t wear earrings and the 1912 Drouot sale of her jewels shows no earrings in her collection.
