Worth-y

This beauty is from the House of Worth, circa 1898.  Frederick Worth is known as the first couturier, because he was a pioneer in using live models to show off his creations.  The House of Worth was a destination -- women would travel there to buy an entire wardrobe.  The House of Worth opened in 1858, and didn't close its doors until 1952. 

Who says in fashion, one day you're in, and one day you're out?
