I like the long, sleek silhouette of 30s gowns. Can't decide if I want the white Vionnet or the black Patou. Hm...Maybe I should just take both... ;)

The Vionnet. I'm a sucker for a belted dress plus it kind of transcends every era.
If you don't already have a copy of the Horrockses Fashion book, I'm giving one away at the moment on my blog.

The Vionnet so elegant, and ethereal she looks like an angel.

Usually I adore Vionnet... But not this time! I love Patou's and Shiaparelli's!

The Vionnet is a show stopper. What color?

Nope the Lelong is the winner for me (though not the belt).

For some reason, I'm really drawn to the Maggy Rouff

I like the Lelong. Looks almost like it could have been shown in the 70s under Halston's name, or in the 80s under Adeline Andre.

The Lucien Lelong looks so modern, I can't help but love it. Agree completely with deang--it's very Halston!
