Norell - Dressing the First Lady All These Years Later




Just last week I was waxing on about Norman Norell. What can I say? I was one week ahead of the times. It's not often you can actually count the days you are ahead of the trend. And since I am usually a least a few, well I won't use time measurements, let's just say I am not often in this position. And this black lace dress the First Lady is wearing is one of the prettiest Norell lace dresses I have seen.

Here's the question: If a First Lady wears a designer's dress some 40 years after he has retired, does it still go on his resume?

I'm just glad she has finally worn vintage. And what a way to start!
