Okay, so someone suggested a Latina woman in the 1940s, and I cannot find the message asking, so here it is for whoever asked!  I love the idea.
This style of evening costume - with the bare midriff - was hugely popular for Hollywood stars like Barbara Stanwyck and Rita Hayworth.  This pose and gown are modeled off Hayworth.  It’s an alternate universe where Hayworth kept her father’s Hispanic last name, didn’t dye her hair red to hide her heritage, and was fat!  I would so go see movies in that universe.
