Description

Unknown woman modeling one of Norell's signature sequined dresses in front of an audience that is seated in the designer's studio. The two-piece sleeveless dress appears to be made from dark fabric embellished with lighter sequins, with solid bands of the lighter sequins around the neckline and hemline. Norell incorporated multiple ensembles with bare midriffs in this collection, which were shown alongside more conservative looks.
