The over-the-top expression of opulence seen in this 1910 ball gown worn by a prominent member of the Astor family is a testament to the degree of ostentation required at certain events in order to stand out from the crowd. The dense sequin and bead embroidery on the gown would have created a beautiful shimmering effect. Made by Mrs. Osborn Company, America. Via MMA.
