About the Costume

This white dress made by Eugene Alexander was initially designed for Whitney Houston to wear in a 1987 photo shoot. One photo from the shoot eventually made its way onto a 2012 LIFE magazine cover. At one point, the gown made an appearance at a Goshen College exhibit featuring gowns by Alexander, where it was displayed with just one flower. In 2008, the dress appeared on Sarah Jessica Parker when she played Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City movie, though the skirt was shortened. It’s unlikely the two gowns are the exact same one.
