Ivory wool tea gown with black silk velvet and black lace decoration (back), American, 1875. Worn by Amelia Beard Hollenback (1844-1918), wife of the prominent financier and philanthropist John Welles Hollenback (1835-1927), in the months immediately after the Hollenback's first daughter was born, this early example illustrates Amelia Hollenback's keen awareness of fashion.

With its black and white palette and its graphic quality, this real British dress from 1865 or so reminds me of the Ascot scene in the film "My Fair Lady," though of course the black and white dresses and hats there were of a later period.
