Who Says?

Who says you can't wear black with brown?  I do it all the time.  The fact is, these two colors look great together.  And Christian Dior agrees.  This suit from 1954 is by Christian Dior-New York. 

The ad was put out by DuPont to advertise their trademarked Dacron polyester fiber.  I've shown you ads before of clothing made from DuPont fabrics by Paris couturiers.  The Dior suit shown above was made from wool blended with Dacron to add a wrinkle free quality to the fabric.  OK, enough about the suit.  I want the car!

You can have the car, if I can have her figure!

That suit is stunning. But what I want to know is, did women really shake hands like that in the 50's?

She's got that concave-abdomen posture brought in by Dior in 1947. I'm sure the undergarments required to achieve it were very uncomfortable, but I like the way it looks. Some people, though, have described it as making women look like they've been hit in the stomach.
