Sensational Oleg Cassini sapphire blue and emerald green sculpted hourglass gown dating back to the late 1950's. Oleg Cassini was a French-born American fashion designer who dressed numerous stars, creating some memorable moments in celebrity culture. With his designs for Jacqueline Kennedy and Grace Kelly he really garnered admiration and even awe, for American fashion design. This gorgeous silk-satin gown is a wonderful example of his genius. The stiking color combination really sets this showstopper apart with others during this time. The bodice has a unique low-cut scooped plunge with pointed sides. I love the bold middle draped sash with fringe trim. The nipped-waist silhouette is so flattering and truly shows why he remains influential and predominant today. As Oleg Cassini once said, “Fashion anticipates...elegance is a state of mind.”
