Another Gown for Grace, Lanvin 1939

Worn by the Comtesse Jean de Polignac, this dress had been debuted in New York in 1940 for the charity event “Le Colis de Trianon-Versailles”, it hadn’t been seen again in NY until the Met exhibit “Blithe Spirit:The Windsor Set” 2002-2003. It is a stunner, well worth the long wait.
