I knew if I searched hard enough I would be able to find a photo of the ‘gownless eveing strap’ that Shirley wore when I saw her in 1967 at the Talk Of The Town’. Unfortunately it is only in black/white. It was in a gold material and was really quite sensational. I’m sure you can appreciate it caused quite a stir back in 1967. It was all held together by one small hook.
Doug Darnell designed some amazing gowns for Shirley during her career and this one was no exception.
