"Death Becomes Her"

That's the name of this exhibit of
mourning clothes recently on display
at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume
Institute.  They had one of Queen Victoria's
 "little black dresses."  Well, actually, it isn't really
little at all—although Victoria was quite
vertically challenged, her frame and the fashion of
the day required the use of many, many yards of fabric!

  1. Perfect title for an exhibit of mourning clothes, Yes Queen Victoria had an ample figure, didn't she?
