|Louise Brooks, as a Ziegfeld Girl|
In regards to the question "What does it mean?", the answer is simple: it's a name. In particular, it is the surname of one of the greatest theatrical impresarios of our time, Florenz "The Great" Ziegfeld, creator of the infamous Ziegfeld Follies. The Follies were lavish and elaborate theatrical presentations
known particularly for their beautiful, glamorous and talented chorus girls, as well as the lavish costumes the girls preformed in. They ran fromv1907 all the way until 1936, with a small attempt at resurrection in both 1943 and 1957. However, they have really come to exemplify the spirit of "La Belle Époque' and the "Roaring Twenties".
