The foofy tutu skirt that McBride wore make the Paris Opera Ballet ones by Lacroix look sleek.  I had thought that Lacroix had changed precedent, but his are less fussy than the the one in the photo.  i actually like it, although the tunic matches the choreography and music a lot better.

f.y.i. the black-and-white version of the photo reproduced in Bentley's Karinska book taken for publicity purposes for the first outings of JEWELS in '67, thus w/ Karinska's original designs.

scan of another photo, meant for publicity purposes for a show about Edward Villella, called "A Man Who Dances,"  from the time of the first season(s) of JEWELS, which may have been previously posted on this site.

unfortunately Villella's costume is largely obscured.

f.y.i.

Fascinating -- McBride's skirt is quite ruffle-y, but has those tabs that look rather like the contemporary costumes.  Perhaps this is an intermediary stage?

 

And I love the color logo for "NBC Color Television!"

I love the hybrid of the tutu and the tabs.

Photos 104 and 105 in B.H. Haggin's Discovering Balanchine show McBride (with Villella) in this hybrid outfit.
