Where Was It Worn?

This silk with rhinestone evening gown was donated to the Metropolitan Museum by the lovely Diahann Carroll.

I always wonder where it was worn. Was it an awards ceremony? A charity gala? A movie premier?

I have looked at every Google Image and Pinterest photo there is of Diahann Carroll and although she is photographed in a lot of beautiful evening gowns, I can't find her in this one.

Oh well, it must have been a quiet evening without paparazzi.
