Kylie Verzosa and her Lovely Lobster Gown


Here's a little fashion trivia on Miss International 2016 Kylie Versoza's now infamous "Lobster" gown which a lot of pageant fans poked fun about it..seeing the gown as fashion disaster...ignorantly not realizing the high profile background of it's inspiration.

In the 1930s, Wallis Simpson (Duchess of Windsor, an American socialite. Wife of Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor, formerly King Edward VIII) was a frequent subject of Cecil Beaton’s photographs.
Before Wallis's marriage to the Duke of Windsor in May 1937, Cecil Beaton was asked to take some official photographs of the bride-to-be at the Château de Candé, where she was staying as a guest. Since many of the past photographs of Simpson were unflattering, Beaton had a bright idea and suggested more romantic-looking pictures, including an image of her standing in the château’s garden wearing the SCHIAPARELLI LOBSTER DRESS.

The infamous lobster dress was a design collaboration with Salvador Dalí that grew out of the lobsters that started appearing in the artist’s work in 1934. Beaton took almost a hundred photographs during the session with Simpson, and Vogue devoted an eight-page spread to the results.
This Lobster dress is said to be a high fashion dress that only socialite women can wear. So for those who are curious and criticizing why our Miss International wore a lobster dress during in her presscon, this info will help a lot..And since Kylie is Miss International, a Japan based Org, expect for a more simple yet elegant dress that our Queen will wear during her reign.
