American Vogue November 15, 1951. Cover: Balenciaga's Christmas ball dress, a Christmas package in itself - white satin tied with a streaming red taffeta bow. Bows are the be-all and end-all of every Balenciaga evening dress, but this is the biggest one that he's ever tied. On the lips, Lucian Lelong's new "Sealed Lips" lipstick, compounded for indelibility; the shade shown here is "Pink Flair." Photo by Cecil Beaton. |
