“Joan Crawford in No More Ladies (1935) is dressed in a signature sleek and timeless dress by Adrian. The halter neck style was now important for eveningwear, and designer Madeleine Vionnet promoted the look. In the Thirties, costume jewellery was worn big and bold in the evening, in contrast with the demure, tailored looks and simple dresses for day.”
