Before we begin speculation about this puzzling photo, let’s take a look at the clothes. The year is 1965. The women look to be in their late forties to early sixties. Three have taken to the sheath dress style of the decade, in neutral colors of black and beige. The one with the big white collar on her black dress is following longstanding advice about bringing light to the face. That used to be done with white lace, but she has updated the look with a big satin boat neck. Standing out here is the woman on the right in her pink dress with a “fit and flair” structure. In this group of more restrained styles, it looks like she borrowed her daughter’s prom dress.
Three have skirts just below the knee. The one on the left has decided that a longer look is best for her. We can’t see all the shoes, but they appear to be medium high spiked heels. The woman on the right wears a sparkly pair.
Pink is apparently an important color to this group. The background of the center photo is pink, the woman on the left sports a pink ribbon, and of course there is the exuberant pink dress on the right.
Can anyone know what’s going on here? Try outs for “Queen for a Day?” A celebration of the new leader of the Order of Q? I would love to hear your thoughts.
