MILE TONES S Titanic: A Look Back A century ago, the RMS Titanic sank off the coast of Newfoundland, yet public fascination with the disaster hasn’t waned. Here, we look at the fashions and stories behind some of those onboard. OK, as this is just between friends, we’ll admit it: We’re suckers for all things Titanic. The fashions, the upperclass snobbery, the disaster, the it-can’tcome-soon-enough-re-release-of-the-LeoDiCaprio-film-in-3-D… Ahem. April 15 marks the 100-year anniversary of the luxury liner’s fateful maiden voyage, and seeing as we obviously can’t get enough, we thought it’d be interesting to take a look back at the impressive styles of the time. —Amy Dodds The wealthiest travelers onboard the ill-fated Titanic, John Jacob and Madeleine Force Astor, were returning home from an extended honeymoon in Egypt. John Astor was among the 1,522 people who perished. Gown: Couture House: House of Drécoll. Dress, 1912. Silk, No dimensions available.
