Lily Elsie

Lily Elsie (1886 – 1962) was the most popular English actress and singer during the Edwardian era, best known for her role in the hit London premiere of Franz Lehár's operetta The Merry Widow. Admired for her beauty, she was one of the most photographed women of Edwardian London. Cecil Beaton said:"To see her merely walk across the stage was a poem." She was said to have the 'most kissable mouth in all England'.
