This is such a breathtaking 1950's couture party dress from the iconic Ceil Chapman designer label. Perfect for any upcoming special event; you can't help but feel sensational in this beauty. The garment is fashioned from stunning mid-weight silk in the prettiest merlot red color. The detachable skirting has a unique over-sized tiered petal design throughout; giving the dress so much depth and texture. I especially love the bow-tie waist which adds the perfect touch of femininity. The bodice is an exquisite thin-strap heavily sculpted thin-strap construction. I love the hourglass nipped-waist wiggle cut 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!
