Nightlife is your Dior, 1976


Flames engulf the exposed engine of a car, its hood pulled back in a crumpled mass, the door on the passenger side swung open as if someone has left in a hurry. Model Patti Hansen, resplendent in a coral-and-gold gown and a long brown fur cape, twirls just feet away. The scene is set in the dead of night and only a chain-link fence, implying a destitute urban neighborhood that a gown-and-fur- clad woman would not normally haunt, obstructs the barren concrete landscape. It seems that the adrenaline of the crash has made our heroine flippant in the perilous situation. And she is dressed to kill.
