Model wearing a Balinese print evening gown by Traina-Norell with what appears to be a matching scarf worn over the head. The photograph was sent with a press release issued by the advertising agency N. W. Ayer & Son, and can be found with the accompanying letter in Box OSx-2, Folder 9. The description in the press release indicates that the model is also wearing a "medieval-looking" flexible gold mesh necklace by Jean Schlumberger, a French jewelry designer, which features graduated amethysts and diamonds.
