That Ain't Cleopatra

Neysa McMein created a shipload of portrait covers for McCall's, and this is a nice one, even though y'know darn well that ain't Cleopatra, nowhere near the right ethnicity, just one of McMein's socialite friends, posing for a lark.

Neysa McMein — McCall's — January, 1926

considering it was a lark, you'd think she'd look a little bit more chuffed about it, wouldn't you?

&, anyway: Cleopatra had a big nose. that's my useless fact of the day. you're welcome.
