Porter Woodruff offers up the latest in eveningwear in this illustration, which appeared in the May 11, 1929, Vogue. The woman on the left wears a sheer wrap with folded detail by Patou. The woman on the right sports a velveteen wrap with a one-sided fox-fur collar by Vionnet. The easy elegance offered by these looks is a true testament to the power of simplicity—a power shared by the work itself.
