Rene Hubert with Boudoir Dolls 1926

I am so excited about this old photo! It is dated in back August 15, 1926 and handwritten Rene Hubert, 1st Edition. Mr. Hubert was a costume designer, and my guess is he designed the costumes for these celebrity boudoir dolls.

I found a blog that has some information about Rene Hubert.

Can you identify these celebrity look-a-likes?

Gloria Swanson?

Maurice Chevalier?

Rudolph Valentino?

The Dolly Sisters?

Lupe Velez?

Dolores del Rio?


  1. That is a great photo...all those wonderful dolls!

    Looks like you made some very good guesses on the celebrity dolls. I wish I knew my 20's film stars a little better so that I could help you out. The very first doll has such a distinctive look. Hmmm...I'm stumped!

  2. The first doll looks like Gloria Swanson to me. Look at the eyes and smile!

  3. Yeah, I was thinking maybe Gloria Swanson, but the outfit threw me. I would have thought he would have dressed her in something more exotic. I added her name under the photo. I think you're right.

  4. Could the one in the top hat be Raymond Griffith? The great smile and funky eyebrows remind me of him. Check here:

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.

Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
