1941, Charles James launched this mermaid-like gown early in his career and created several versions of it over a period of twenty years. The name of the dress, LA SIRENE, refers to sea creatures in Greek mythology who used their enchanting voices to lure sailors to their deaths. The soft folds cascading around the wearer's hips beautifully highlighted the silhouette of the wearer.
The Magnificent Seven - directed by John Sturges and starring Yul Brenner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, Horst Buchholz and Eli Wallach. A great western I rented today based on Akira Kuirasawa's Seven Samurai.
