I really felt these gowns needed to have their own post! They are so breathtaking, seeing them in person was a true joy!
The exhibition culminates in a separate room called the Masked Ball. The three gowns here are fabulous magpie concoctions made from old dresses, trim, yardage, pompoms and fur, and each—a glittering Madwoman of Chaillot (1965), a hot-pink Scheherazade (1969), a swan-like Proustian duchess (1971)— just magic! I was viewing these with the British fashion journalist Suzy Menkes which was quite cool. Here are the gorgeous designs which I am sure will make you smile!
I really didn't take these photos like this on purpose, but they actually almost match up to each other! Pretty wild I must say! Such gorgeous details on this one.
