Mrs. Donald Bradford, nee Marion Filmer, is posed wearing what appears to be a masquerade costume, based on the black eye-covering mask perched on her blond wig. Per Inez Brooks-Meyers [11/20/2000], she is wearing a "probably refashioned garment from the 1920's--with an over-panel of machine embroidered ecru colored batiste, trimmed with matching fillet lace---over a sleeveless black dress. She also has a corsage of artificial Lillies of the Valley" at her left shoulder. The photo has been trimmed from a larger photo.
