Other perspectives on this gown:  #1    #2

In #2 (from Stephen K), the petal-like marks are paint - the picture had been retouched crudely into colour. Stephen scanned it in black and white, as the color was both garish and unrealistic, but that didn't remove the marks someone had put all over the gown.





Jörg provides this silhouette in paper -
he believes it may be of Miss Clifford




We are told this is Camille Clifford, but it must
be in her younger years - she looks different. 




Jon H.:

"This popped up after a bit of googling. It is a very well known advertising
image but I had never seen the original. Often said to be Camille Clifford
without any evidence whatsoever, and the lady does not look particularly like her."
