On a crisp Autumn evening in 1949, a New York fashion model named Anna-Lee Daniels and her gay Irish boyfriend, Henry, took it upon themselves to demonstrate just how chic ladies' undergarments were becoming. Recognizing that the latest slips were so minimal in their design - appearing much like the dresses flappers were often seen wearing, it was decided that the two should step out for a night on the town - with young Anna-Lee sporting the slip, just to see if anyone was the wiser.

Like all stylish couples, they were accompanied by a magazine photographer who snapped them all evening long as the mismatched pair gallivanted from one swanky watering hole to the next. The fetching Miss Daniels was never denied entry anywhere - never asked to vacate a single gin mill; the duo knew they were on to something [probably not, it was 1949, after all].
