Paris Evening Gowns - 1931

Today, the second in a series of 1930s garments from Paris, namely evening gowns from 1931.  Which is your favorite?

A Broekman's black lace gown is topped with a turquoise velvet wrapped jacket with fox fur cuffs.

Broekman's chartreuse green crepe gown is topped with a deeper green velvet jacket with sable collar. 

Jeanne Lanvin white georgette evening gown with dramatic sleeves.  A silver belt adorns the waist.

Raymonde Latour black silk gown with tulle bodice and sequined skirt.

Mondet et Cie evening jacket in three shades of pink sequins sewn onto silk tulle.

They are all so beautifully dramatic, but my favorite is the gown and jacket with the fox fur cuffs.

Hard to choose, but I like the Broekman with the fur cuffs.

Love that second one, the Broekman.

In triple digit heat it is difficult to get excited about fur cuffs. Today the Lanvin and Latour are my favorites. 30's evening gowns are utterly divine.

The mondet et cie is amazing!

The velvet wins with me.

No contest...the Latour! SIGH! Today, if you can get someone to tie their shoes or hoist their pants, you're doing well. Oh, Calgon, take me away!
Love, Kay

The '30s is probably my favorite era and I love the look of '30s (and '40s) fashion. And I just love the glam in these photos!

There's no clear favorite today. Every gown got at least one vote. My favorite is the pink sequin jacket by Mondet et Cie. I would have loved to see it in color.
