Ballets Russes: Overdress from costume for Aurora

This dress was designed by Alexandre Benois for Serge Diaghilev and Les Ballets Russes.

This ballet confines itself to the final part of Sleeping Beauty, the marriage feast of Aurora and her prince. Within the wedding guests are nobles, a retinue of fairies, the Bluebird and Little Red Riding Hood, who join the awakened Princess Aurora dancing with her new groom in an enchanted setting.
