More Marc Jacobs: Gracefully Yours

My favorite item from the Marc Jacobs Spring 2010 collection, shown at Fashion Week in New York: this amazing, gossamer gown, as whispy as a spring breeze.

Was, by any chance, its inspiration a Grace--not Coddington--but one of three dancing a rondel in Botticelli's delightful painting of Primavera, herself the embodiment of the Spring season?

Maybe not, but it's nice to think so . . .
