Size: medium

Condition: Excellent

This is such a seductive and dramatic formal gown from the iconic Ceil Chapman designer label. Perfect for any upcoming event; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty! The garment is fashioned from stunning watercolor light-weight metallic floral print silk-brocade. A slice of turquoise silk-satin peaks through; giving the garment so much depth and texture. The bodice is an exquisite thin strap ruched shelf-bust design. I love the sculpted sarong style draped skirting which finishes the garment off with a perfect femme fatale silhouette. The construction is so fresh and modern yet 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!
