New lines for the new decade –
Norma is wearing a silk crepe afternoon frock of the new Spring shade ( left ),fuchsia. The lines follow the curves of the figure flaring in to a slightly uneven hemline. Puffs above the wrists give interest to the sleeves, while the hat, also of fuchsia shade, reveals the newest in brim lines. The far left photo above shoes another view of this charming frock, with the new cut-out neckline emphasized by a bow of silk.
The graceful evening gown worn by Norma Shearer shown next is of pale powder blue silk. It is Grecian in line with the bodice caught up over one shoulder and finished with a scarf of the material extended to the uneven hemline. The other shoulder is bare.
Norma Shearer demonstrates the newest Spring accessories, the new crystal bracelet and evening slippers of white crepe with strap trimmings in gold leather.
Next – Janet Gaynor in her little dinner and dancing frock of leaf green souffle over a satin crepe slip of the same color. The skirt is circular and the bodice and cape Bertha are trimmed with lace. Green is a popular Spring color this year by the way !
To the right – Mary Brian is wearing an ensemble of beige tweed. The skirt is a compromise between last year’s shortness and the new mode. The short jacket is trimmed with beige caracul and brass buttons, the newest cry in Spring sportswear.
That’s all !
