Wool evening suit featuring a floor-length straight skirt with padded hips and a fitted jacket with a sable fur collar and sleeve cuffs. An article featuring this same look from Vogue indicates that the ensemble is in "coral-cast tangerine", and the dress underneath features an empire waistline that contrasts the natural waistline of the jacket. The model, shown beside two chairs and a decorated backdrop, also wears dark gloves and diamond jewelry, including a necklace and earrings. This photograph was part of a larger scrapbook that can now be found in Box OSx-2, Folder 12.


Vogue, August 1, 1948, 46.
