An Evening at the Ball

I’m back to my favourite movie and my favourite look from movie… of course it has to be the  fabulous gold evening dress worn by the Baroness Schraeder! Beautiful soft gold satin, draped in a figure hugging full length evening gown, shoestring straps and finished with an oversize tulle rosette and ultra glamorous full length white gloves.

               

Swoon….here’s the original which I ADORE….

But I think this is more a 1960s version of a glamorous 1930s evening gown? I suspect there is structure (or should I say foundation garment?) under this dress that just would not have been used in the 30s, but hey, I’m ok with that.

 

The glamorous Baroness really contrasts with Fraulein Maria in her traditional dirndl style frock,

but that’s what a Baroness should do, yes?

 

So long, farewell,

Auf Wiedersehen,

Goodbye,
