Fashion 1914 races

This is a high fashion 1914 "race gown" made by French designer Jeanne Paquin. Paquin often dressed her models in gowns meant for the opera or the races. I'm not in love with the dress - it certainly followed the lines of the time but it's too puffy for me. The parasol, however - I would kill for!
