Irving Penn photo of Lisa Fonssagrives in Dior, circa 1950.
by Irving Penn: Grey for night when it glistens, like silver with a puffed patina. An enchanting short evening dress of the airiest possible cloqué* in silver grey. Quite unfitted, narrow, it's the setting here for a blaze of diamonds circling the neck. By Hannah Troy, diamonds by Harry Winston. *cloqué is a cloth with a raised woven pattern with a puckered or quilted look.July Vogue 1963 | via Flickr Christine dovima_is_devine_II
