Yves Saint Laurent
"The best and most sophisticated pants looks in Paris."

Saint Laurent obviously loved women. Thrown over a pair of black crepe pants, a thin crimson halter edged on beads. A cable-stitched cardigan of gold and ruby beads, and Saint Laurent jewelry thrown on to complete that cazh luxury of the go-anywhere evening look. A Standout!

Yves Saint Laurent
"The Little Black Dinner Suit"

Like no one else could do it ... a pleated cire satin skirt stitched to the hip with a matching quilted cardigan bordered in SABLE. The perfect simplest V-neck pull underneath, striped in black and silver sequins. Gagous!


Bias-cut black crepe, blouson back, the skirt folded over in front giving the look of a wrap

The Very Covered Dress in Black Georgette

Ungaro's Lynx For A Cold Night

Thrown over a bare little ruffle-necked angora jersey top, beige-and-white trousers. Ivory jersey wrapping the head - mmm ...


The ease and seduction of ivory satin-crepe pyjamas - sheer Dior
Drop It Like It's Hot

The Flirt of The Sleeves on a Short Dress For Evening


The Dress With A Beautiful Length of Back ... brown crepe embroidered with pink mirrored straps and stripes and a cardigan that's a perfect mosaic of mirrors.


Perfection in long black organza drawn high in back with two streamers circling the neck, tying to one side and  adding to the allure of bareness. Simply perfect!

The simplest sweater, shirt, and skirt in the thinnest gold lame.
