Lalla Selbini

She is “a classic beauty,” and while “there have been other girls in tights, some of them very roguishly naughty, there have been none so fascinating as Selbini.”
"She tried to twirl a silver baton, and only cracked her fingers on the floor and then almost cried... Then there is a little ordinary juggling, a little singing in a small parlor voice, a little bicycle riding, an act on a single wheel - and, suddenly, as she stands at the top of her pedestal, there is a single hook unfastened, a quick swirl of draperies, and Selbini a la Eve - save for that tight, clinging, filmy blue - finishes her act."
