Lauren Hutton 

The chonmage ... traditionally speared with attenuated shapes of ivory or tortoiseshell: here a dinosaur spine of Georg Jensen silver from knot to nape.

Alexis Kirk golden hair sticks, spiked sleek and shining as is the Francis Whitney flanged gorget circling the throat. 

Mouche in Mainbocher

Black as night velvet, tiny waisted and voluminously skirted with long narrow sleeves.

Mainbocher's black crepe one-shouldered tunic curves like folded petals over a knife-pleated chiffon skirt. Jeweled butterflies at the waist.

Diamante-buttoned and belted pale blue silk crepe shirtdress.

Amber and brown African inspired print over a long flow of white wool challis. Choker of giant angelskin coral from Tiffany at the neck.

Veronica Hamel in Galanos

Pintucked white wool jersey, a deep slash from neck to midriff, a deep cuff at the wrist of each sleeve.

Nine-tenths coat of silvery white lace flowers to toss over streamer sashed pants and a jewelled top.

Silvery scalloped lace long like a Persian tunic open from bosom to hem over gunmetal lame pants.

Lace chemise smothered with gold Victorian roses tumbling over its sash of braided chain.


One of fashions great agents provocateurs. Here, his paillette-fringed, laquer-red crepe tunic-pyjamas.


Leathery long-coated pantsuit appliqued with blossoms.
