Grecian Drapes

Καλωσόρισες from the Greek Islands!

I took a trip out to Delos, one of the leading archaeological sites in all of Greece. Today the island is an uninhabited archaeological site, and when I visited (desperate for water and shade), I went into the indoor museum which houses finds from the island dating back to 7th century BC.

Inside I found a nice amount of sculptures and was struck particularly by all the Grecian draped attire.

This got me thinking that Grecian drapery has long been one of the most popular attributes to red carpet attire. Unlike other styles or colors which may be trend-right for one particular season, Grecian inspired gowns are in many aspects timeless. And so here are some of my all-time favorite Grecian draped moments.
