From Vogue 1958- model Monique Chevalier wearing a Ben Zuckerman suit.
This suit is really special- it is made up of a wool skirt and cropped wool jacket in rose pink. The skirt appears to be slim cut and is accented by a lavender belt. The jacket has one large button and has a collar so wide that it extends past the model's shoulders.
The blouse is a maroon velvet- and it appears to be made up of the richest of velvets. There is a matching scarf at the neck, and the hat matches perfectly as well.
Monique Chevalier was a top model during the 1950's. She frequently appeared in Vogue,including numerous covers, and was photographed by the leading photographers of the day, including Irving Penn and Bert Stern.
