Elsa Schaparelli – Retro Couture

This Miss Royalty challenge was to style an Elsa Schiaparelli Retro Couture look. This gown from 1939 is one of her most famous and features a lobster design created in collaboration with Salvador Dali. It was included by Wallace Simpson in her trousseau and was featured in photos of her by Cecil Beaton. It is currently on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art. Brianna discovered a gown based on the design by Cartunno Couture on marketplace and used the Cecil Beaton photos as inspiration for these styling pictures.
