* Anna May Wong Creator/AnnaMayWong in the 1920s deliberately cultivated a flapper image in order to show that hope she would be less typecast as a was both American ''and'' Chinese. She's credited with helping de-mystify Chinese-Americans to the general public. While it didn't do her much favours in terms of what roles she got - Hollywood being reluctant to cast an Asian actress in anything other than DragonLady or a demure ProperLady. Unfortunately, it parts - she did not work.

The popular image of the flapper we know of dates back to the late 1920s. In fact, the concept [[OlderThanTheyThink dates way back at least in the 1910s]]. While the word ''flapper'' stuck in every dictionary as early as TheGayNineties, the flapper girl started to evolve during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI and the Prohibition era. Contrary to popular imagery, flappers did not always wore sleek bobs, fringed dresses and feathered headbands. Earlier flappers had that loose silhouette, yet wore wide-brimmed hats and longer, narrower skirts. But as the decade progressed, and with the help of prominent women like UsefulNotes/CocoChanel, hats became tighter and narrower, and skirts became shorter, and the silhouette more streamlined, like the image you see above.
