Libby Holman?[edit]

Erm, the Libby Holman dress could potentially be a halterneck, the ties just not visible from the angle the photo shows. Are there any other existing photos that show it is, indeed, strapless? magentafeelings (talk) 00:49, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Good question. When it was substituted, I did look very closely myself too, because I was dubious myself. For the era, I'd expect to see something much more substantial, halter-wise. You can see it's pretty tight around the torso where the fastenings are clearly stretched down the side seam. You can enlarge the photograph to a really large size on Wikimedia Commons, and I don't see any sign of a halterneck there, not even the slightest hint of a tiny spaghetti strap around her neck or showing between the dangles on her earrings.
