Well, since I was talking about that legendary dress yesterday, here is the one and only Audrey Hepburn, all dressed up for Royal Ascot. She’s in costume for My Fair Lady. The dress I saw in Grandma Take A Trip was white with black polka-dots, and rather shorter, but it possessed something of the lively spirit of this lace gown. (Though I can’t help but shudder at how dirty the hems of ladies’ dresses must have got once upon a time!)
What spectacular costumes Cecil Beaton did create indeed. No wonder in 1964 he won Academy Awards for Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.
