Gene: Priceless

Circa 1949 is the era that this José Ferrand creation hales from. Echoing one of my favorite silver screen stars, Susan Hayward, Gene is a stunning vision in this modified tuxedo dress. From the story card:

The rumor mill was in a frenzy. Reports were flying around that Gene Marshall had consented to model a necklace in an advertisement for one of the world’s most prestigious jewelry houses. Excited fans clustered around the jeweler’s on the rumored night. Velvet ropes blocked off the front of the store—a promising sign. And then…

Suddenly, there she stands, poised and regal, draped in diamonds. But the most dazzling gemstone can’t hold a carat to the fire and sparkle provided by Gene Marshall.

Gene is posed in front of her Swan Dressing screen, inside a room at the Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs.
