This 2010 photo provided by Jeffry Dupuis shows the Baby Doll Ladies performing in the Zulu krewe parade on Mardi Gras in New Orleans.  Baby dolls – groups of women in skimpy or short, ruffled dresses – started with one group of African-American prostitutes wanting to one-up another on Mardi Gras 1912, but spread within decades to respectable black neighborhoods. The tradition had died out is seeing a modern revival.  (AP Photo/Courtesy Jeffry Dupuis via New Orleans Society of Dance)
