House of Lanvin 1926 French

Opera star Ganna Walska wearing a fancy dress costume designed for her by Lanvin, French, 1926. Miss Walska was generally considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. This fact proved extremely important to Walska’s career as she apparently had a terrible voice and spent the majority of her career using her looks to ensnare of series of six increasingly wealthy husbands.
