This photo was taken to feature the nylon stockings, but all I can focus on is the glorious, billowing lace of Hubert de Givenchy's couture evening gown from 1954. Look how he took such care with the inner skirt so what you see exposed behind the high hemline matches the outer skirt. The white satin pumps were made by I. Miller for Givenchy.
Another view of the same gown. Quite stunning, isn't it?
