Fashion Part II

In the spirit of the holiday dress-to-the-nines season, I'm sharing dresses that were celebratory in nature.  They are indeed lovely creations, but how did these ladies sit without ruining their clothes? Enquiring minds want to know.  Any experts out there?

Fancy Dress Costume, Charles Frederick Worth, c. 1870
"Junon" Dress, Christian Dior, 1949-50
Evening Dress attributed to Liberty of London, early 1880s
Evening Dress, Charles James, 1946
(You can read my review of the excellent Met exhibition of his clothes here.)

Detail, Afternoon Dress, Charles Frederick Worth,  c. 1875
Tune in tomorrow for Part III, the final installment of my Fashion review.
