Enchanting ballgowns from the early 1950's era are perennial favorites and this silver showstopper is breathtaking. The garment's silver silk satin reads so modern yet the detailed structure is a treasure trove of Old Hollywood design. There is so much detail, you can tell this masterpiece was created with every angle in mind. So Charles James! The bodice has an elegant low cut shawl-collar plunge with a unique front flap overlay. This turns into impressive sculpted pleats with flow to a low backside. The nipped waist skirting skims the hip and flares out into a true full-length. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture.
