Dress of the Day - July 27, 2011

Dress of the Day: Madeleine Vionnet, Evening Dress (1937). A silk gown from the master of draping and the bias cut. Vionnet used minimal cutting and seams, often creating dresses from one piece of fabric. Her admiration for ancient Greek clothing is evident in this elegant and simple gown. It also sublimely versatile: the blue hue is rich but the fabric is sheer. It can be dressed up or down with jewelry.
How would you wear it?
