Voilette Is French for Veil

Dress by Jeanne Lafaurie. Hat by Paulette
This stunning cocktail dress was designed by the French couturier, Jeanne Lafaurie. Equally fascinating is the black straw hat adorned with yellow flowers and a short voilette designed by Paulette. I had to check the definition of voilette. It is French for veil. The photograph is a 1951 Georges Saad.

If you are so fortunate as to own a hat by Paulette, you must consider displaying it on a Marge Crunkleton mannequin. Considered one of the leaders in vintage mannequin head reproductions, Marge hand paints each of them era appropriately. You can view her inventory at Crunkleton.com. I am leaning toward #17 Paula. Which one do you want?
