This issue has one fashion plate and one short essay on fashion.

I love Mamma dearly
(from page 527)

IT would be easy for us to amuse our readers with a description of dresses, which have no other existence but in the fancy of the writer, or to fill pages with imaginary habiliments; but we rather content ourselves, in the absence of all change in fashion, to present our readers with the exact representation of a fashionable Dress sent last week from one of the first houses in St. James's- street to a lady of distinction in Brighton; of which we give a short description. When the fickle Goddess shall have resumed her empire in the metropolis, Le Beau Monde will be distinguished, as usual, by the superiority of the plates, and the taste of the dresses.

HEAD DRESS.--A blue double tira, [sic] ornamented with pearl; two small feathers on the left side; pearl drop earrings and necklace.

DRESS.--Blue crape over white satin, a lace tippet trimmed with pearl; white kid loves; white satin shoes.
