Quaintly modern in this afternoon and cocktail frock of heavy faille taffeta that indicates the season’s endorsement of gleaming trimming by splashes of black paillette embroidery.  June Lang, 20th Century-Fox player includes it in her personal wardrobe.  The full “swing” skirt, puffed sleeves, and belt neatly tied in front are high fashion notes.  Black accessories, including a silk velvet hat, trimmed with two large silk pom–poms, are the choice of this lovely young actress, who has an important role in “The Road to Glory.”
