Vintage Lilli Ann

I have a bound set of Vogues from 1954 that I like to drag out now and then (it is huge, you could kill a robber with it) and scan some of the pages. My favorite are the Lilli Ann advertisements that show up on the 2nd or 3rd page of each month. I wish I knew who the model is, she really was fantastic looking.
Someones grandma now...the "march of time" and all that.



Fabric of France "Bamboo", Marvelous blending of mohair, worsted and silk created by Faques Exclusively for The exciting new Lilli Ann Couturier Dress Collection. Lime, Cognac, Fawn, Blue, Violet, garnished luxuriously with mink flowers....




Fabric-Of-France "Embossed Nuage" Rhinestone studded silk and cotton fabric created exclusively for the exciting new Lilli Ann Couturier Dress Collection. Black and White, Gray and white, Brown and white with dramatic velvet trim.....



Both 1954....

Not sure how I feel about the mink flying monkey thingees (yes I know they call them "mink flowers"...they look like monkeys to me) on that halter though.
Creepy.
