This is such a breathtaking and ethereal couture party dress from the iconic Ceil Chapman designer label. Perfect for any upcoming special event; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty! The garment is fashioned from stunning mid-weight ivory silk satin. Sparkling glass beads, rhinestones and sequins are then added throughout; giving the garment so much depth and texture. I especially love the unique lace floral applique work along the strap and hemline. The bodice is an exquisite heavily ruched boned halter design. I love the hourglass nipped-waist which finishes the garment off with a perfect femme fatale silhouette. The construction is so fresh and modern but also still has a timeless quality. Ceil Chapman is often said to be Marilyn Monroe's favorite designer and I can totally see why. Old Hollywood glamour at its best!
This Ceil Chapman designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. Only sign of wear is faint marks on side from alternation. Bodice has full boning throughout. This garment is over 60 years old and is truly stunning.
