More from Famous Frocks - The Little Black Dress

Many of you asked if I could provide images  from the inside of
Famous Frocks - The Little Black Dress

So I sent an email to Chronicle Books and they said yes you may!  I was all set to take pictures of the inside but Sarah at Chronicle Books said, I will send you some jpegs.

Wow, even better, so here they are (click on them for a full-size picture)

Ava Gardner inspired

Mary Quant inspired

And then Grace Kelly

All three of these are beautiful, do you have a favorite?

I would go with the Grace Kelly for my favorite of these three.

I will be drawing the winner from the comments on that post only.

I hope you enjoyed the images and thank you Sarah for providing these images.
