This is such a seductive and dramatic formal gown from the iconic 1950's Ceil Chapman designer label. Perfect for any upcoming holiday event; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty! The garment is fashioned from luxurious mid-weight silk satin in the most stunning ruby-red color. I love the low cut shelf-bust sculpted strapless. Perfectly placed pleats give the garment so much depth and texture. The fitted nipped waist met by a voluminous circle-skirt finishes the garment off with a perfect New Look 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!
