Evening dress by Weeks, 1910 Paris, the Met Museum Associated with royalty and symbolizing beauty, immortality and exoticism, the peacock has long been a favorite motif of artists. Particularly during the Art Nouveau movement, designers incorporated the birds into their work, inspired by the creatures’ sinuous bodies and showy feathers. In this gown, by the little-known Parisian house of Weeks, both printed and embroidered peacock motifs enliven the skirt and bodice.

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.
