A guest at a Chinese wedding

This wedding guest is dressed fashionably in a nipped-in waist Western frock, which was very popular during the 1950s and 1960s in Singapore. The tight fitting silhouette was probably influenced by the Dior look introduced by French couture designer Christian Dior in 1947. The woman is also wearing a pair of matching white heels.
