LUCILE, WITH CLARA KIMBALL YOUNG FOR INSPIRATION, HAS DREAMED A PERFECT SETTING FOR A PERFECT BRIDE AND MADE HER DREAM COME TRUE IN THIS SHIMMERY WEDDING GOWN WORN IN "THE REASON WHY"
Caption for large picture: The princess of a Russian fairy story might choose this wedding-gown and the stately coronet of pearls to match all the other glittering bits of splendor that make a royal wedding in a story-book. It's shimmeringly white, and its satin splendor is veiled with a bodice and apron of soft net in which tiny white pearls, embroidered in a Russian pattern, twinkle altogether pleasant things. A fringe of pearls drips from the long flowing sleeves, and a pointed train gives the dignity that belongs to a princess--or a bride. Alfred Cheney Johnston [photographer]
Caption for small picture: Whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are lacy, whatsoever things are of white satin and glittering with jewels and daintiness, the bride is certain to think on these things and to claim them as her right. This parasol with a carved ivory stick and a frothy top of Duchess lace veiling the glimmer of white satin and rippling into scallops, the fan of dainty rose-point lace mounted on carved ivory sticks, the satin and brocade slippers with buckles sparkling with rhinestones set in platinum, and the sheer silk stockings with real lace medallions at the front were all just made for a bride.
