The picture shows a model wearing a full, long, taffeta skirt and a long-sleeved white top with deep square neckline. A globe is printed on the front right of the skirt. The model, also wearing a pair of long and colourful earrings, is posing for the photographers, with her hands in the small pockets of the skirt. The look belongs to the A/W 1996 Couture collection of Lapidus.

Edmond "Ted" Lapidus was a French fashion designer. After an apprenticeship with Dior, Lapidus founded his fashion house in 1951, gaining popularity during the 1960s and 1970s. In 1989 Ted Lapidus's son Oliver Lapidus took over the label. In 2000 Lapidus stopped the couture line, and since then the label produces fashion accessories like watches and fragrances.
