TUESDAY, JANUARY, 8, 1964 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PA01 Take Heart, Men; Fewer Clothes Needed for Gals Fashion Expert Sayt U.S. Women Could Get By with Lest By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD «—Here'i tome happy new year's news for American husbands: a French style expert thinks the women here could get by with fewer clothes. My source is Jeanette Spanier, directress of the exclusive Pierre Balmains salon in Paris. A hand- ij *onie English woman, she mar• lied a French 'doctor and became the head of business matters for Balmains. , • This is her first trip to America tnd she is full of enthusiasm for such things as escalators, Santa Anita race track, the courtesy of sales people and bourbon old fashioned!. i Impressed "I am impressed by the way American women dress," she commented, speaking with a Gallic flourish of the hands. "Americans far exceed the French in casual clothes; you wear stunning things here. You are also superb in dinner dresses. But for ball towns—ah, that Is where the French are superb. "Another thing the French do best—the simple black dress. A French woman can wear it to lunch with only simple gold Jewelry. In the afternoon, she can wear it with more ornate Jewelry. Then she could wear it to dinner at the most exclusive restaurants by adding a few accessories. . "I do not see that in America. Thfc women seem to worry that they will be seen in the same dress twice. French women do not feel that way. They might Wear the •ame dress three nights in a row 3,and not be concerned." » This may seem like heresy in her business, but Mme. Spanier added that French women don't vacillate with the style. ; "All this talk about hems going up and down!" she exclaimed. "It's just for publicity—to give the fashion reporters something to write about. French women never change the length of their hems." : Mme. Spanier recently helped supervise the outfits for Lana Turner in "Betrayed," which was filmed in Europe. She said that Balmains had designed some rather subdued dresses for Lana, since she plays'a schoolteacher in the film. I asked what she thought of Hollywood designs. "My, they do have a lot of sequins, don't they?" she replied pointedly. But she added that many of the stars' costumes are well done, even if they have to bs overdressed for dramatic purposes. . - : What about the best dressers among the stars? "Lana wears clothes very well," she commented. 'I don't want to make it sound like loyalty to my hostess, but Claudette is one of the smartest women I have ever seen. I felt that way even before I met her. "Betty Bacall Bogart wears clothes beautifully, and BO does Mary Livingstone. Mrs. William Goetz is perhaps the best dresser in Hollywood; everything she wears is perfectly chosen. Offstage, Marlene Dietrich is very chic. Of course, she has to wear more theatrical clothes on stage. I'm anxious to see that gown she is wearing in Las Vegas. "Oh, yes, I can't forget Katharine Hepburn. We dressed her for 'The Millionairess' in London. She wore a ball gown that was simply gorgeous on her. Unfortunately, she always wears slacks offstage."
