Seeing Double

I came across this not too long ago.
The chiffon dress was designed by American fashion designer Bill Blass.

Sharon Tate wears the dress for Harper's Bazaar 1967. 
Photographed by David McCabe.

Unknown 60's dolly-bird wears the dress in a 1968 issue of Vogue.

Who do you think wore it better?
And which colour do you prefer?

Images (1. 2.)


  1. Hi, Lucy! Green is my color and therefore I prefer dolly-bird #2. It is also impossible for me to look at poor Sharon and not remember how she was murdered two years later in the Manson slayings. It is painful for me to watch her in Valley of the Dolls for the same reason.

    1. I know, it's terrible what happened to Sharon Tate. I cannot bear to search images of her when looking for something because I'm too frightened to see something else that may come up.

  2. I'm a big fan of green, so I would say that one! and it goes nicely with her auburn hair. But Sharon Tate is still lovely

  3. I do very much love the green dress but not many people can surpass the beautiful Sharon Tate.

  4. Oh I do love the green one, both dresses look lovely though.

  5. I love them both! Those swirls are so groovy! x

  6. Although the colours in the second picture are brilliant I can't say I don't love Sharon Tate. I'd love to be a third one wearing this dress though! xxx

  7. gorgeous! i love the dress in both colors! it looks amazing!
