Stylish, from whatever year

Here's Carole Lombard from relatively late in her Paramount career, p1202-1385. We know that because of the p1202 number (seemingly from 1936) and a date at the bottom -- yet that date is 1938, by which time she had left the studio:

The stunning pic, from the George Smoots collection, is in excellent condition and is on glossy single-weight paper stock.
