The look created by Gil, Max Factor’s magician, was inspired by a dress called Smoke by Gerard Pipart for Nina Ricci. A sinuous wisp of gunmetal satin, a series of bias cut panels sweeping to the floor. The nightshade eyes, shining, heavy lidded in a face pale as moonglow, and startled by a rich, dark mouth.

Velvets have gone into print this winter. Dashing suits and jackets come in all the mutations of the earth, sea and sky and are designed to be worn before rather than after dark. They look a million dollars and sometimes don’t even cost that much.
