Jean Harlow in Reckless, dress by Adrian, 1935

"Jean Harlow, in a scene from Reckless, wears a dress designed by Hollywood costumier Adrian. The film was made in 1935, but the minimal modern dress could easily belong to a woman in the mid-Nineties. Chanel had made black dresses fashionable, and throughout the century simple black styles have had a timeless appeal. In this era women still wore black dresses to show off their jewellery. Costume jewellery was widely worn, particularly Art Deco-style pieces in red. green and black paste."
