Phyllis Diller (1917-2012) was a famous American stand-up comedian, actress, singer, dancer, and voice artist who was best known for her eccentric stage persona and whimsical clothing. Diller was a groundbreaking celebrity; she was one of the first woman comics to become a household name in the United States. She paved the way for Joan Rivers, Roseanne Barr and Ellen Degeneres, among others, who credit her influence. As pictured, this amazing ensemble comes from her personal wardrobe. The garment is fashioned from watercolor pink and yellow print silk-chiffon. The bodice is a low-plunge blousy silhouette with dramatic bell-sleeves. I adore the high-waisted gypsy harem-pants with optional sash belt. This three-piece set is a perfect reflection on the life of Phyllis Diller and an investment piece that will only increase in value.
