Last week you disapproved of Elizabeth Taylor’s very frilly, very feminine, very pink and white, and not very historical Civil War era-ish dress for 1957’s Raintree County. It came in at a dismal 3.7 out of 10. The only thing that saved the score from being one of the lowest ever was that most of you felt that Liz would look good in anything.
This week I stick with a bi-coloured gown, but it’s all a little darker and scarier and quite a lot less lacy. To get you in the mood for Halloween, here is a purple and black dress from 1870.
And a back view that shows you much more of a rather scary orange paisley shawl than it does of the dress itself:
What do you think of the striking striped frock? Are purple and black just a little too-Halloween-y at any other time of the year, even if the purple is verging on violet? Do the stripes and the fringe charm you or scare you?
