Monmouthshire, Wales, February 1951
'Two extremes of fashion are designed and worn with great authority in Britain: the tailored suit and the ball dress. This last - shown like an elegant ghost of a lady who might have lived at Clytha Park, Miss Herbert's Monmouthshire home.
Norman Hartnell's strapless evening dress and jacket: layer upon layer of lilac tulle, hand embroidered with lilac pailettes. Twin-pointed tiara of diamonds set in Palladium; long matching earrings.'
British Vogue, February 1951, page 57.
