"The white dress designed by Adrian and worn by Joan Crawford in the 1932 film Letty Lynton had an enormous influence on fashion. Manufacturers copied it and women flocked to department stores to buy the 'Letty Lytton dress'. The dress also helped to kick-start the trend for wide shoulders."

Scanned from the book "Decades of Fashion".
