Dovina? Dior?

This was on PostSecret this week and I'd like to make this outfit. I thought this was Richard Avedon shot of Dovina wearing Dior but I am probably wrong. Does anyone know for sure?

Don't have an answer, but a little search turned up at least three brave girls in voluminous gowns leaning out of the Tower, way high up! They're almost at the end of the photo series here.

I'm not sure whether that's Dovima or not. By the way, Dovima is spelled with an "m."

I don't think it's Avedon, I think it's Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Dior but can't find the name of the model.

Ok, thanks. I was hoping to find a book or website with a better photos but knowing the model should help. Don't have time to look now but I'll see if I can dig something up later. That outfit screams to me and I have to have it!

Okay, I'm unsure if this is the information you want but here goes.

The model is named Kouka and I think from the link I've listed below say she is a Dior model, and the design inspiration was the Eiffel tower. HTH.
