1905 evening dress by Worth

This dress shows the complexity of crioline, bustle, and Belle Époque dress with an over-skirt that overlays a matching skirt and bodice, but also a contrasting under-bodice. The over-bodice and bodice appear to cross the distant shoulder at a diagonal; a layout favored by performers, such as JLo, since then.
