This is such a breathtaking cocktail dress from the iconic Ceil Chapman designer label. Perfect for any upcoming special event; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty. The garment is fashioned from stunning mid-weight baby-blue lined silk. Sparkling glass beads and rhinestones in a unique leaf motif are detailed throughout; giving the garment so much depth and texture. The bodice has a chic ruched shelf-bust with wide scoopneck. I especially love the hourglass nipped-waist tailored skirt which finishes the garment off with a perfect femme fatale silhouette. The construction is so fresh and modern but also still has a timeless quality. Ceil Chapman is often said to be Marilyn Monroe's favorite designer and I can totally see why. Old Hollywood glamour at its best!
