Black as Midnight

The color black is associated with sophistication & power...tuxedos, limousines, judge's robes & priests' attire ~ all typically black. "Black is modest & arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy & easy, but mysterious..." ~Yohji Yamamoto (b. 1943) Japanese fashion designer based in Tokyo & Paris. "Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there's shadow... fullness." ~Amy Grant (b. 1960) American singer-songwriter, musician & author.

Valentino star and moon embroidered evening dress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

French designer, Madeleine Vionnet - "Carnival Dress" - 1936.  This black silk bias-cut halter dress has an overskirt of sheer tulle overskirt.  The skirt is held out away from the underskirt by rows of silk pompoms, which also add weight, giving it a lovely silhouette.
