The Eye 

With hemlines in focus, the eye just naturally moves on to some important new implications. Like stockings - paled to 20/20 invisibility. By Berkshire. Shoes: the lady on the ladder wears rhinestoned blue satin, tapered at the toe and heel. By Delman.

To - the new fine point of what you wear in the evening. For black, its finest shadow, graduating into the shining black of satin pumps. The stockings so transparently visible  are Hane's new black evening shadow, without so much as the outline of a heel to give them away. The Shoes: an extravagantly beautiful high-arched shape with a cavalier buckle sketched out in rhinestones, a tall fine arching curve of heel. By Delman
