"Joan Crawford uses a different device to draw attention to the shoulders here, a short bolero ending in a wide bow. Bows were used on the backs and sides of dresses, and her waist is emphasised here with a large buckle. Sashes and belts with square buckles were popular waistline detailing for daywear."
