Fashion History: Watch “The Battle of Versailles”.

The Battle of Versailles is an event in 1973 at the grand Versailles Palace that pitted France’s best designers (Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy, Pierre Cardin, Emanuel Ungaro, and Marc Bohan of Christian Dior) against the best America had to offer (Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, Anne Klein, Halston, and Stephen Burrows).

It was the first time the fashion world’s gaze was fixated on American design.
