Lily-of-the Valley! My favorite flower! Scrumptiously fragrant, tiny and delicate (unlike me!) and tres cher (very expensive) to buy as a cut flower. Limited season availability. Oh! It is also the Flower for the Month of May!
'Les Muguets' (Lily of the Valley) Evening dress Hubert de Givenchy, Paris 1955. The strapless bodice includes inset boning, so the wearer could step into the garment and not have to wear cumbersome corsets. This was standard in a couture gown.
