Gladys Cooper, 1910s

Gladys Cooper, 1910s, originally uploaded by Gatochy.

"The actress Gladys Cooper, later to be the star of stage and screen in The Second Mrs Tanquery and My Fair Lady, wears a high-waisted Empire line evening dress in the new fluid, classical style. Although the fussy frills have gone, the surface of the dress is still intricately beaded. Feathers, tiaras and jewelled bands were often worn in the hair for the evening."

Scanned and quoted from the book "Decades of Fashion" by Harriet Worsley.
