Mademoiselle magazine fashion editorial featuring a "shocking" pink silk surah skirt with fine pleats and small dots printed throughout. The skirt is paired with a wrapped blouse with three-quarter length sleeves. Although the copy refers to the designer Elsa Schiaparelli and her use of "shocking" pink colors, the ensemble is made by American designer Mildred Orrick.
