Butterfly Girl Scene In CHEATING BLONDES

Thelma Todd sang a song dressed as the "Butterfly Girl" in CHEATING BLONDES.

Along with a few fellow Butterfly Girls in the chorus.

Butterfly costumes have been worn by other girls in show business.

Vintage Butterfly Showgirl art.
A more recent variation by Dita Von Tease.

And from the world of cartoons, Butterfly Betty Boop.

Vaguely related to all this was the gown with a butterfly on it that Sally Eilers wore in the seduction scene in STATE FAIR ( 1933 ).
