Bonwit Teller window display featuring formal men and women's designer ensembles. The display is part of a series where royalty of different nations are featured in every window. The floor is covered in simulated marble while the wall is hung with sparkly curtains. In addition to the clothing, the display advertises several Revlon products that were being featured in Vogue at the time, by grouping them together on the floor near the foreground of the display. The men’s ensemble consists of a long suit jacket, bow tie, dress shoes, and white button down shirt. The mannequin holds a globe on a string. The women’s ensemble consists of a mid length patterned dress, several pearl necklaces, heeled shoes, and a fur wrap. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's Queen of Diamonds love the real thing... the world on a string... her enchanting dress from our Designers Sixth Floor... Real Thing Red by Revlon... as pictured in the current Vogue"
