Yes, it's true everyone loves chocolate as evidenced by the Chanel post below, but we are also mad for black and white. Bill Blass always designed great classic fashion that made his ladies look good enough to eat (like a chocolate bar). Think only of Nan Kempner and her retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art a few years ago, and all the Blass looked so tasty! Case in point: this black and white beaded scoop neck tee-shirt dress with feather hem. Black and white always looks modern but we are particularly fond of the white sequins blended with black woven circles in this very simple silhouette. Certainly it is made a little Showgirl-va-va-voom with the marabou feather trim thus rendering the dress cocktail or black tie (when a long gown isn't mandatory) as this evening dress is glamorous, effortless, and timeless -- just as Blass always designed his quintessential American fashion.
