Evening Gown | House of Worth | c. 1910
Pastel evening dress with silver beading, 1907-10. Although the House of Worth was still favored by royalty and celebrities through the turn of the century, their styles were no longer the forefront of French fashion after 1900. Around 1910 Jean-Philippe limited his design work to important orders and hired his nephew, Jean-Charles Worth, as the new lead designer before leaving the company entirely after World War I.
Yet again, an amazing gown from the French House of Worth. I rather loath the lack of colour here, but I can only imagine how that network of embroidered rhinestones on the bodice combined with the glorious beadwork must have caused heads to turn and gasps of amazement when the fortunate woman entered the room. How she must've sparkled!

"Bessie Blount: Henry VIII's True Love?", by Conor Byrne: http://conorbyrnex.blogspot.com/2014/04/bessie-blount-henry-viiis-true-love.html IMAGE: Portrait of an unknown woman, circa 1525, possibly Bessie Blount. The miniature was also previously identified as Anne Boleyn, though this is unlikely for many reasons, and also her sister, Mary Boleyn, which is also a strong possibility.

Elizabeth, or Bessie, Blount is commonly known for being the first known mistress of King Henry VIII of England (1491-1547). It's possible that this portrait could be of this beautiful gentlewoman, notwithstanding arguments advanced by historians that it depicts Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Mary Boleyn, or Jane Seymour.

Elizabeth's life was troubled from the moment she was born. Henry VIII had changed the course of his country's history in order to marry Anne Boleyn, hoping that she would bear him the strong and healthy son that Catherine of Aragon never did. But, on September 7, 1533 in Greenwich Palace, Anne bore Elizabeth instead. Anne did eventually conceive a son, but he was stillborn. By that point, Henry had begun to grow tired of Anne and began to orchestrate her downfall

Helen Keller confronted the Nazis shortly after the book burnings of 1933. “History has taught you nothing if you think you can kill ideas. Tyrants have tried to do that often before, and the ideas have risen up in their might and destroyed them." She went on: “Do not imagine your barbarities to the Jews are unknown here. God sleepeth not, and He will visit his Judgment upon you.” Click through

“So long as I confine my activities to social service and the blind, they compliment me extravagantly, calling me 'arch priestess of the sightless,' 'wonder woman,' and a 'modern miracle.' But when it comes to a discussion of poverty, and I maintain that it is the result of wrong economics—that the industrial system under which we live is at the root of much of the physical deafness and blindness in the world—that is a different matter! It is laudable to give aid to the handicapped. Superficial
