 Irene Lentz stunned the world in the 1930's, 40's and 50's with her ingeniously constructed, sophisticated, couture-standard garments. After charming Los Angeles society and celestial celebrities with her jaw-dropping custom work at Bullock’s Wilshire, the designer was plucked to helm the illustrious glamour factory of stunning costumes at MGM Studios. The two time Academy Award nominated Irene is best known for her work with Silver Screen Legends Marlene Dietrich, Ingrid Bergman, Lana Turner, Ginger Rogers, and Doris Day. Desiring to offer her designs to women off the screen, she founded the manufacturing company Irene, Inc. with investment support from twenty-five of the nation’s leading department stores. This breathtaking coral-pink & ivory silk-chiffon dress is a perfect example of her genius. The seductive strapless bodice is all hand-pleated and has an inner corset construction. A chic asymmetric drape accents the bust and side-hip. I adore the nipped-waist cummerbund peplum construction which is so incredibly flattering! A true collectible and definitive piece of "Old Hollywood" fashion history.

Bust: 32-33 inches
