Dress of the Day - July 31, 2011

Dress of the Day: House of Worth, Evening Dress (1902).  Today's dress was inspired by my visit to the Newport mansions, envisioning the lavish elegance of the Gilded Age. This silk gown ornamented with rhinestones, lace, and flowers exemplifies the formal wear of the period. It is ivory with pale purple and green detail, a regal train, and a sash accentuating the narrow waist cinched by the late Victorian / early Edwardian corset.
