passionate for poiret

Poiret_1911_large >> Now that the Oscars are over, the countdown begins for May and the Costume Institute Gala, more affectionately known as the Fashion Oscars.  The featured designer for this year is Paul Poiret, the man credited with liberating women by doing away with corsets and bringing in pantaloons.  I just wanted to post the preview picture the Metropolitan Museum of Art has put up for their accompanying Poiret exhibit because the beading on this gauze and lame dress is absolutely fit for a queen.   Can you imagine how beautiful it must be in person?
