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. Â It came in at a dismal 3.7 out of 10. Â 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. Â 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? Â 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? Â Do the stripes and the fringe charm you or scare you?
