The Smallest Dress—Geometric Knit ... Tape to the Toes
Barbra Streisand — star plus. Plus two knock-em-dead seasons in Funny Girl. Plus her own once-a-year TV special. Plus runaway album number five. Plus a one-woman concert at Forest Hills in August (seating capacity 15,000; most seats spoken for as we go to press). Plus offers heaped like hors d'oeuvres on a tray—Funny Girl in London ... in the movies ... a concert tour of Europe ... a whirl as a fashion critic on radio. Plus a new haircut that could start scissors whacking all over—nowadays when Streisand stirs, Everything Moves. Here, Funny Girl plus small knits—great team.
(ABOVE) Geometric knit, legs to match: Here's what's with the undershirt shirt. As of this season it's a knitted dress—the smallest...the greatest. Here, with a pulled-down waist...stockings along for the joy-ride. White plus black plus bright-green laid on like boxers' tapes. By Rudi Gernreich for Harmon Knitwear, of double-knitted wool; dress about $40, stockings about $18. All: Lord & Taylor; Dayton's; J.W. Robinson. Grandoe gloves. Barber-shop cut: Frederick Glaser.
Barbra Streisand—star plus, dress plus: little black knits planed by clean, sharp shouts of colour ... cut straight down the body ... skimped everywhere .... With very short sleeves, very short hems: white gloves and boots—very short.
