Green Dress

If you do an internet search of "green dress" you realize that the two words mean so much more together than separately. There's Madonna's hairy green dress, Jennifer Aniston's, Kiera Knightly... I could go on. Someone even wrote a poem about a green dress.

John Singer Sargent did a water color called "green dress" that sold for almost half a million dollars in 1999.

John Waterhouse did a green dress painting too.

Finally (at least when I stopped reading), I learned it is a drug reference from the Dallas area popularized by party-crashing drag queens in the 1970s. Who knew a simple item could have so much meaning!
