Dresses To Die For: The Boldini Edition...


Rather than focusing on a modern designer for this edition of my 'Dresses to die for' feature, I decided to take a look back at the artwork of Italian artist Giovanni Boldini, 'Master of Swish'..
From riding dresses to tea gowns these stunning pieces were painted in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and I'd be happy to wear a few of them today! Why can't fashion still be like this?
It makes me wonder why I wait around to see what modern designers will surprise me with next season, when I can simply delve into the past and find beauty like this!
