It doesn't just cover your figure. It casts an aura of rich elegance. It puts you in dress- up mood — just what you need for the holidays. Ever since the advent of St. Laurent's velvet "smoking" suit, velvet has made spangles and sparkles fashion's second- class citizens. Many of the velvet - dressed women this season will reflect the influence of medieval fashions reconstructed for the film "Camelot." The opulence of the Middle Ages is interpreted at its romantic best by rich - textured boulevard velvets. There are Mrs. Jones Hosts Club Down One Bridge Club met in the home of Mrs. Daniel Jones Wednesday. Game winners were Mrs. Harry Ciiurchwell, Mrs. Jim Parminter and Mrs. Tracy Sandow. Next week the club will meet in the home of Mr. Jack Rinehart, for a Christmas luncheon and bridge. long - sleeved, flowing gowns of classic simplicity, formals lavished with jewel embroidery on bodice or cuffs, hooded monk's robes and demure streaks of velvet touched with ruffles and bows. There are also exciting and unexpected shirt - type dinner dresses with white satin collars and cuffs. Short, off-side buttoned cocktail coats and elegant theater costumes are important on the gay holiday scene too. Although black velvet is still one of the greatest favorites, colors in deep, bright and pale tones also star in the picture. The new shadovel matte velvet produces colors in a new medium, with a closely loomed | surface that eliminates a n 5 I hard sheen. The new boulevard velvets have both crush • and - spot resistant finishes and require only a minimum of upkeep and care. To refresh the surface, just hang the dress over a steaming tub for 3 minutes and brush upward when thoroughly dry.
