It will be love at first sight with this piece of Hollywood history from the 1940's! This "Gilbert Adrian" designed dress is a dream come true and will make a great conversation piece at your next vintage event. The black rayon crepe is heavily beaded asymmetrically on the bodice with leaf like formations in black and silver and a touch of rhinestones. The dress has a plunging neckline leading to light ruching and the exaggerated dolman sleeves taper to the wrist. Triangular seaming gives way to gathers at the center waist and a center slit compliments the neckline. Metal "Talon" zipper up the back and the wrists. This dress is in great vintage condition, with no holes, stains, or odors to note.
