When African American models such as Bethann Hardison, Pat Cleveland, Alva Chinn, and Billie Blair boarded the plane to Paris in 1973, they had no idea they would help change the course of fashion and pull off its biggest coup. The 1973 Grand Divertissement at Versailles became history and legend for pitting the crème de la crème of French couture fashion - Givenchy, Dior, Ungaro, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin against upstart American designers Halston, Oscar de la Renta, Anne Klein, Stephen Burrows and Bill Blass. It was not only the first time French and American designers were shown together but it smashed the glass ceiling loudly and irrevocably for ethnic models in high fashion across the globe. A FilmBuff Presentation.
