Posted in 20th century, Fashion-art, Gracie's gowns, House of Lanvin on April 28, 2010 by babylonbaroque

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.
