"Christian Dior, London autumn collection, and Christian Dior Monsieur collection. The girl is wearing a rain jacket, three quarter in poplin, trimmed with mink round the cuffs, down the sleeves, and around the collar, with a pleated skirt and wearing the Dior knitted cap. The man is wearing a raincoat also trimmed in mink.
"Evening jacket in tafta with butterfly sleeves tied at the neck and around the bottom, worn with a long dress with a centre split. Very daring. And the dress is split in the skirt -- very daringly, it is also revealing a bare top. And not only at the front, but also the back.
"Evening dress in Burgundy georgette, interwoven gold threads, and the neckline and around the arms is decorated with gold leather, gold plate and a matching turban.
"Close-fitting turban....a very daring neckline...makes this tunic and trousers which is being worn for evening a very exciting but at the same time a very casual and easy evening gown."
