Mrs McCorquodale (Barbara Cartland) dressed as champagne
Dame Mary Barbara Hamilton Cartland (1901-2000), married name Mrs Barbara McCorquodale, British novelist. Photographed here in a sparkling champagne dress, part of a 'living Christmas dinner' set of fancy dress at the Santa Claus Ball held at the Kit-Cat club on 18 December 1929 in aid of Queen Charlotte's Hospital National Mother-Saving Campaign. The ball featured a pageant on the theme of Queen Charlotte's Christmas Dinner where well-known Society beauties were disguised as different courses, wine, spirits and puddings! The dresses were designed by the artist Mrs 'Peter' Baxendale and the event was organised by Barbara herself. Date: 1929
