The Most Incredible Gloves!

I stumbled upon this photo on Pinterest the other day and I had to share it with you.  The only caption was "Dior, 1952."  It's a lovely strapless dress, supposedly by Dior, but what I want you to notice is the gloves!  They extend into a stole-like strap that goes over the shoulders and around the neck.  I've never seen anything like them before and would love to know who made them.  If you have seen this photo before and know the source, could you let me know? 

My other question......how do you put these gloves on?

Google came up with this, it's Dior, apparently. ;)

Too bad the page doesn't allow even copy pasting a link to go look at it. O_o That's a lot to type out to go to a link. >.<;;

My guess is stretch velveteen or a jewel in the back, knowing Dior.

they are in the Met Museum and an image of them off, showing the bikini-type clip fastener, is first up when you put 'Dior gloves' into the search box at
