La légende de la photographie indique: "Let a skirt be your umbrella. Christian Dior, originator of the new look, comes forth with a sensationally different evening gown that uses no less than thirty yards of black taffeta for its enormous umbrella skirt. Draped in exaggerated umbrella folds that are kept in place by a stiffened underskirt, the windswept skirt emphasizes a tiny, belted waistline. Black velvet picture hat, black velvet gloves, and a wispy scarlet handkerchief complete the costume.".
