"Miss Music" Gown?     (Nov 2007)

Q:   WAYNE:   Who designed the extraordinary evening gown pictured on the cover of the Miss Music album? Ive never seen a gown like that before or since. It photographed beautifully and I imagine in person it must have been a stunner. I also imagine with that lavish skirt and what looks like a lot of crinoline underskirts, it must have required some practice to move around in.


A:  TERESA:   You know, I cant recall who designed that lovely gown or the others that I wore in the 1950s and 60s. I wish I could ask Angie, who was my wardrobe mistress at the time. Shed remember. Angie used to go with me whenever I went for fittings in New York City. All I remember is that Lucille Ball used the same designer and wed occasionally run into each other and would usually have the opportunity to visit with one another.
