Woman of the Week: Dorothy Dandridge

Paris, 1908 at  The Prix du Prince de Galles at Longchamp racecourse. ...a furore breaks out as three beautiful models enter the enclosure –beneath their exquisite and exceptionally clinging gowns they appear to be wearing – nothing! It was obvious to all who saw them that the young women were wearing neither corset, petticoat nor chemise! The designer of the dresses was Jeanne Margaine-Lacroix.
