THEN AND NOW
I LOVE BOTH OF THEM!
I found the left image and immediately thought, "Wouldn't this be great inspiration for an evening gown?!!" (ok, I'm sure Ralph or Gaultier did a version once)... I might wear that to the Oscars, said this very white & round German girl. Good luck with that.
Then I found the image on the right and thought, "That would be a great split screen. I'd wear them both, I wish they both were in my closet!", but yet they are different. Regardless of my logic, great designs from historically beautiful to current day cotton/boho.
