Dior Evening Dress - 1949

Christian Dior, 1949 evening dress
Oh, how I wish this photo was in color! The year: 1949. The designer: Christian Dior. The dress: Simply magnificent.

Dior covers a strapless ballerina length dress with masses of flowers for his Spring line. Sprinkled among the pastel blossoms are notes of blue-violet. Dior accessorizes the dress with a violet leather belt and a violet Juliet cap. Perfection.
