Model Dorian Leigh wears a slim black rayon crepe sheath dress in this photograph by Cecil Beaton, which appeared in the April 1950 Vogue. Her black-and-white-striped organdy coat by Bonnie Cashin billows behind her, while her view is obscured by the small, veiled hat by John Frederics. Her look is finished with a large rose, fastened at the waist of her dress.
