Costume legend Edith Head designed a party dress for Elizabeth Taylor’s character, Angela Vickers, for A Place in the Sun. It became the inspiration for every prom dress during the 1950s. It was no surprise that Mary, our prom etiquette hostess, wore a very similar dress –down to the daisies strewn across the skirt–to her prom.
Heck, if I had the chance to look/feel like Elizabeth Taylor for my prom, I’d wear one, too!
