a lady in crinoline

Genevieve Lantelme in La Savelli, a drama about Napoleon III, where she played a little role of madame Durand. Scan from Le Theatre # 195, 1 February 1907.

The dress is very beautiful and the actress looks nice, but I think Lantelme didn’t like to put on old fashioned clothes. When Lantelme had at last the right to choose, she preferred to play in modern comedies, and there’s not too much photos of her in 19th or 18th century style dresses.
