This unique 1872 Ball Gown by House of Worth has a fascinating history! Worth rarely adapted forms from the East, however, in this unusual example, he has emulated Middle Eastern enamels. The gown was worn by Mrs. William De Forest Manice at both the French and English courts during the reigns of Napoleon III and Queen Victoria. When worn on such occasions, the dress had a detachable brocade train, since destroyed. Source: MET. #VictorianStyle
