Stunning and highly seductive Old England of Bruxelles custom-made couture cocktail dress dating back to 1959. The client's name label, Mrs. Paliser, is still attached and the amazing construction looks to resemble a famous Yves Saint Laurent for Christian Dior look so popular at the time. The bodice is an alluring low-cut fully boned strapless. The graduated gores of silk, double tiered puff skirt give the garment so much sex appeal and interest. I love the graduated hem, trimmed with a velvet bow. The shape emphasizes a woman's beautiful curves without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of dress you will reach for anytime you want to look like a starlet!
