Ball Gown Jacques Doucet This ball gown is simplistic in design, yet extravagant by the choice of materials used. The sheer overlayer is enhanced by the solid lamé underlayers and a sense of luxury is added by the hidden lace flounce at the hem.
Drop-dead gorgeous ensemble by world-renowned designer, Frederick Worth. Costume owned by the Museum of the City of New York. Ballgown, circa of nougat satin trimmed with tulle, swansdown, crystal beads and glass pearls
