Girl in a White Dress

COUCH CLOTHES: Alfred Stevens, Girl in a White Dress Resting on a Sofa
Stevens painted poems of 19th century society clothed in fine fashion - see the languorously lovely Girl in a White Dress above. Ladies loaned him their lavish dresses for portraits, which remain a source of info on contemporary mode - his archetypal French femmes found in intimate scenes defined modernity.
Catherine Malandrino dress. Vintage belt & jewelry (silver Monet bangle). Miu Miu shoes.
Spring's glorious white trend comes to life with cutouts on this sheer shift - laser openwork designs on refined blanc cotton voile. Hunter-gatherer: scoop neckline & scalloped hem skirt. Delicate gold jewels from last weekend's estate sale include short chain necklaces, cut glass flower pendant, sapphire ring.
