76 This frock of Constance Talmadge's sounds enough fashion notes to make a whole musical scale — for it's of gray chiffon over rose and blue silk, and as trimming has tiny knots of pastel shaded flowers. Please Page Flora McFlimsey! She was the lady, you know, "who had nothing to wear;" she'd be interested, we're sure, in some of the smart costumes seen on the screen. Help! Help! Priscilla Dean's going automobiling — and when she wears this new suede motor coat of hers she looks at it instead of the road. So, whether you're in the car or on the street, you're out of luck. Of course, it has a fur collar, but nobody minds a little extra warmth if it's becoming. "Make it hearts," says May Allison when she's wearing this rose-trimmed hat at an afternoon bridge party — and every susceptible person who sees May under its fashionably curved brim immediately adds a heart to her score. "Just a simple little cloth costume," says Irene Castle Tremain, but if there's anything simple about that intricate — and fashionable — surplice bodice, we fail to see it. Perhaps just the walking stick is simple ! Certainly the shoe buckles and hat aren't. In the alphabet of Gloria Swanson's wardrobe, "C" stands for chinchilla, and "G" for georgette and gray. Put the three together and they spell one of the stunningest evening wraps it's been our lot to encounter. (Who'd urge spelling reform after seeing this ! )
