Not a stitch wrong on this stunning Worth dress from the 1930s, but goodness, you couldn’t wear a stitch underneath either, and heaven help you if you didn’t have exactly the perfect figure. Best admired from afar as a piece of impeccable design – I imagine an impulsive try-on in front of the mirror could reduce most women to deep despair, except for Mademoiselle M, whose debut in a Palermo dress shop’s finest fishtail dress and lace was worth a Vogue shoot.
