“The fringed front hemline of the dress epitomizes the dance-until-dawn flapper style. However, only the wealthiest of flappers could have afforded our magnificent ensemble, e.g., Millicent Rogers, the Standard Oil heiress. In her anarchic youth during the Twenties, she made an indelible impression on high society.
The dress comes with a burnt orange silk chiffon slip, the top of which is lined with silk crepe, making the slip appear darker. The collar of the cape is ruched and padded. The cape is totally lined with matching burnt orange silk velvet. The best velvet is silk velvet—so luxurious against the skin.
… The gown shows the wearer has what the French call l’art de se faire valoir (the knack of writing your own price tag).”
