Balmain combined details from several of the bouffant cocktail dresses in his regular spring 1960 collection to make this unique version for Her Majesty. Interestingly, Balmain featured a strikingly similar dress in his spring 1963 collection, suggesting that the custom designs he developed for Her Majesty inspired his regular collections as well.
