Bodice worn by Empress Elisabeth of Austria when she was assassinated by Italian anarchist Luigi Lucheni on the shores of Lake Geneva, September 10, 1898. Diana Vreeland points to the tear where the sharpened file pierced Elisabeth’s heart. 

I’m not sure where it’s currently held but I assume it’s at the Kaiserliche Wagenburg Wien

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts
