An incredibly gorgeous and highly coveted Halston couture pearl beaded sheer crochet lace wrap gown dating back to the mid 1970's. Halston revolutionized the way women dress and is one of the few designers, alongside Claire McCardell and Norman Norell, to define what is American fashion. Throughout most of the seventies he epitomized the glamour, as well as the decadence of the era, becoming a central figure in the nightlife scene of New York's Studio 54. He was known for his flattering body-conscious clothing in. This iconic, ultra-rare showstopper is a perfect example of his genius and is also a celebrity favorite; shown on both Lady Gaga and Dakota Fanning. Halston was especially interested in the bias-spiraling of fabric over the body. This gown is fashioned in luxurious sheer silk lined beaded crochet cotton lace yet he alludes to nudity. The glossiness and suppleness of the beads give the appearance of a liquid surface, almost becoming a skin on its own! I love the intricate deco swirl pattern which has been skillfully placed. The bodice has a seductive low-cut plunge backless halter design and ultra flattering 'easy-to-wear' nipped waist wrap closure. The curved skirting with polished pointed back hem finishes this garment off with the perfect femme fatale vibe. We showed many images so you can see how gorgeous the gown is from all angles. An unforgettable, museum worthy look for any wedding or red carpet event.
