The 90s were noted for huge sleeves as seen here. The era could be equally noted for hourglass figures. Most dresses have natural waistlines, but one, right center, has a waistband and shallow vee waistline - a preview of things to come. The two Ladies to the right wear chignons while most wear curly coiffure. What appears to be an older Lady who is leaning over wears a straight coiffure. Most dresses have square or deep bateau necklines.
