“Dior makes his cocktail dresses wide as ever, fourteen inches from the ground. This one in bronze changeable taffeta, its lamp-shade skirt draped in crushed pleats over a stiff buckram petticoat. Worn with a tiny, tilted, feathered velvet cloche. Continuing: Delicate, pointed classic opera pumps (often of bronze kid), worn with all late-day clothes.”
