Velvet Evening Dress
It was the most fantastic Christmas tree anyone had ever seen.
Rising at one end of the garden room at least 60 feet in the air, like “some great Athena in a Greek temple.”
This “Athena” was bedecked with a mass of colored baubles, 5,000 in all, some as big as pumpkins.
Greenacres, Harold Lloyd’s 44-room mansion, was the “hottest ticket in town” come the holidays.
And since you knew that nobody in their right mind could compete with the surroundings, you were smart enough not to try.
All you needed was:
The perfect drape.
The perfect velvet.
The perfect cut.
Say hello to Clark, he’s just coming over with the perfect Martini.
Isn’t that Colbert, and Garbo, looking lovely, but not nearly as lovely as you?
Velvet Evening Dress (No. 2503). True to the 1930s original. Simple front and back neckline, with that back action slightly lower. Bias cut has never been improved on for that impeccable way it suggests your curves without giving them away.
Does Lubitsch really want to cast you in his next movie? Imported.
Pairs well with The Butterfly Bolero (No. 5029).
