so im watching the 10 part pbs documentry on jazz. i am on part one and of course they are talking about the creole people. it showed this picture and i fell in love with it. obviously i found it on google and saved it but i would love to know who it is.

if anyone knows who she is and/or has any info about her i would very much appreciate it

To me she looks like the preformer formerly known as Prince.

Those eyes look like they could see a thousand miles.

The most beautiful woman I ever knew was of French Creole Heritage. If your fantasy girl was Creole and played in a band or worked a pub or speak easy, she was probably quite some gal.

I wonder what the story of the picture is: it looks like someone added gold leaf jewelry to it - the earrings and ring that she is wearing, I mean - I don't think they're real.
