If the invitation is really dread and you feel a creeping paralysis of boredom days ahead, there are only — two ways out. One is to behave so badly that you are never asked again; the other is to look so outrageously glamorous that you rivet the attention of every man in the room. Revive nostalgia for the unattainable Hollywood style, in a luscious apricot satin evening dress, correct with every Forties detail — sweetheart neckline, wedding dress, buttons, even an artificial flower on the shoulder.

Great shot, but I think later than Dec 1968. I’m working through this era of Vanity Fair at the moment and wondering if it’s into the 70s.
Having scanned it from the December 1968 copy of Vanity Fair myself, I can assure you that it is from the December 1968 copy of Vanity Fair. Best wishes, Liz
