A woman performs a Josephine Baker dance routine in Baker’s famous banana costume during Halloween celebrations at Santa Monica Blvd on 31 October 2009. Baker (the American dancer, singer and actress who found fame in her adopted homeland of France) wore her most famous costume for the ‘Danse banane’ from the Folies Bergères production Un Vent de Folie in Paris in 1927.
