"Alice Corr, 1953 Maid of Cotton, is all set for a gala evening. She's distinctively gowned by Celia Phillips of Frank Starr in black-on-white printed organdie-- a dress calculated to make any girl the belle of the ball. Jet sequins outline the print in the bodice and are scattered throughout the skirt. A high-rising sash nips in the waistline, bells out the full skirt. The organdie is by Menke Liberman with a Heberlein finish. Coro jewelry. Dawnelle gloves."
