Left Evening dress:
This dress was designed by Christian Dior (1905-57) in 1957, the year of his death. It was commissioned by the Baroness Alain de Rothschild to wear for the state visit of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip to Paris in April 1957. Many grand events were held during the visit, such as dinners at the Louvre, Versailles and the Elysée Palace, and also visits to the opera and races.
Middle Evening Dress:
Lady Gladwyn was the wife of the British Ambassador to Paris from 1954 to 1960. She hosted the state visit of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at the Embassy in April 1957, and invited her great friend Diana Cooper to attend the dinner held at the British Embassy on Tuesday 9 April, at which this dress was probably worn. It was designed by Pierre Balmain (1914-82), and the bodice features the appliqué technique favoured by him.
Right Evening Dress:
While the dress’s surface is a soft, delicate lace, in contrast the underpinnings are highly structured: its petticoat features a boned bodice and a crinoline skirt. The pale violet colour and two-tiered skirt suggest a romantic view of women’s fashion.
GAZA UNDER ATTACK NOW.
important world update:
Gaza + Palestine are under attack by Israel, death toll currently at 27 :(
This has been a long and destructive period between Israel + Palestine. If anyone has any reliable sources to learn more about what’s going on at this current moment, please let me know
- The Guardian: Israel pounds Gaza with air and naval strikes in move against Hamas
- Al Jazeera: Israel steps up deadly Gaza Strip offensive; at least 27 dead, 130 wounded
- New York Times: Israel and Hamas Trade Attacks as Tension Rises
- RTE News: Israel launches major offensive against Hamas
- BBC: Israel ‘ready for escalation’ of Gaza conflict
Please don’t. Don’t repost this shit.
I don’t trust these Western news sources (with the exception of Al Jazeera), even the titles of their articles are acting like there is two equal sides attacking each other.
See how they keep mentioning Hamas and how Israel is responding against Hamas.
No, that is not the case. That is of course what Israel says and has said every operation to justify their attacks on Palestinians.
These are not two equal sides. Israel is not targeting Hamas. Israel is targeting civilians just like it has in every other attack. They target homes, hospitals, schools, soccer fields, and ambulances.
This is no “conflict” this is Genocide.
^^^^^^^^ Justicia goshdarnit. Pero serio dont trust the media.
This is Sharpay Evans.
In her junior year, all her hard work she’d put into the East High drama department was thrown down the drain when a ruthless monster named Gabriella Montez transferred to the school and heartlessly seized the leading role from her.
Over the summer break between her junior and senior years, she was stabbed in the back by her own twin brother mere moments before she was meant to go on at a talent show, and she was deprived of the prestigious Star Dazzle Award that she - and not Gabriella Montez - deserved.
In her senior year, she was betrayed yet again. Sharpay, out of the goodness of her own heart, took a British exchange student named Tiara under her wing. Tiara turned on Sharpay and stole her role in the spring musical.
Nevertheless, Sharpay managed to bounce back, and she overcame all that stood between her and her dreams.
Everyday, I am inspired by her strength. Like and reblog if you are too.
This sad Brazilian fan was shown crying. But no ones published this beautiful picture of him handing the trophy to a German fan. He was quoted as saying "Take it to the final! As you can see, it is not easy, but you deserve it, congratulations" (Roughly translated)
Made me cry again.
