Christmas Party Red

I don't have a single Christmas Party invite. Oh my, that goes on the to do list. The Christmas season has finally burst upon me and my mind has drifted off to red party dresses - it's a happy place. So much better than LBDs. This is one issue I agree with Mr. Bill Blass upon: " When in doubt, wear Red".

So to herald the Chrismas party season, and encourage the wearing of Christmas Red instead of New Year's Eve Black, I offer a montage of red party dresses through the decades for your enjoyment. All sold, alas. I tell you : Red Works.

What's here? clockwise from upper left, a 1950s chiffon, a 1970s Balmain chiffon, a 1970s Norell wool knit, a 1950s unlabeled silk, a mid 1950 Galanos chiffon, a ca. 1923 Harry Collins velvet and a 1920s red silk crepe.
