Ruby Dee in a ruffled blouse

Actress Ruby Dee wears a blouse with a truly ruffled ruffle at the National CARE Mentoring Movement Gala at Espace, a private event space in New York City. The date was December 2, 2008, which may account for the shiny holiday feel of her ruffle. New York City was Ruby Dee's home turf: she made her Broadway debut in Anna Lucasta in 1946; she and her husband Ossie Davis were then Broadway regulars for decades.
