Josephine Baker
La Revue des Folies-Bergère program
1926
James Weldon Johnson Memorial Collection

Of all her provocative and outlandish costumes, the costume Josephine Baker wore when performing with the Folies Bergère—which consisted of just a scant skirt made of jeweled bananas—caused the greatest stir. Though some found her costumes and performances offensive, fans around the world loved Baker’s sexy stage persona.
