Give a frock Friday

Linda Evangelista wears a John Galliano for Givenchy Haute Couture, hand-pleated, double-layered mousseline dress with Juliet sleeves.  Styled by Grace Coddington and photographed by Steven Meisel for Vogue, December 1996.

I remember seeing this dress in Vogue magazine back in 1996 because I remember many designers taking inspiration from the film Sense & Sensibility which was doing great things at the same time. 

Emma Thompson won an Oscar for her beautifully written screenplay interpreting Jane Austen’s novel so well that I think we all wanted to go back in time and live like the Dashwood sisters portrayed by Emma and Kate Winslet. I still can’t watch Sense & Sensibility without crying a river over the scene when Edward proposes to Elinor. 

I will be off-line all weekend and for most of next week as we are going away to Rainbow Beach to stay at a friend’s beach house, yay! I was only saying the other day how much I would love to getaway and what a surprise, a trip away to Rainbow Beach was offered to us this morning, how serendipitous? 

I wish you a lovely weekend.
