The New Dress, by Talbot Hughes

On one hand, I really love this dress. It is so beautifully fitted and attractive, the fabric is lovely, and it is just striking. On the other hand, it is also the weirdest thing I've ever seen. What is going on here? Is it an European dress with a drape? A fitted sari? Can you even do that? I just don't even know how to interpret this. I wonder if this is a thing I just don't know about, or if it is a lone occurrence because artists are weird and don't have to paint normal dresses. Anyway, it sure is pretty.
 But since the red and gold brocade is so inspiring, here is another Worth for you (although it is certainly a bit earlier at 1885). Oh yeah!
