The Beauty of Retrospect: Chris Royer and Nancy Dutiel, 1976

How's this for a find? :-D

Although Chris Royer (left) is known today as a Halston muse and Nancy Dutiel is best known as the Lancôme spokesmodel who preceded Isabella Rossellini, they have several other credits in their portfolios.  And in this photo, from an advertisement that appeared in the March 1976 issue of the U.S. edition of Vogue, they appear together.

How much beauty can you stand? :-D  

The ad was for McNamara suits, the text of the ad boasting of the durability of their Du Pont-engineered Dacron polyester fabric.

Better fashion through chemistry?  Aw, heck, Chris Royer and Nancy Dutiel never needed synthetic fabric to look stylish. :-)
