PARIS — A 72-year-old Madeleine Vionnet halterneck gown, a crumpled heap of brittle tulle and silk flowers, has been laid out for inspection in the restoration rooms of Les Arts Décoratifs — and Maximilien Durand, director of the restoration department, issues a grim diagnosis.
“This dress is really ill and will necessitate 60 days of restoration without any certitude of being able to save it,” he said. Things looked less serious for a silk frock dyed in a shocking flush of pink and a geometric dress from the Thirties with a circular neckline in broken mauve lace.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
