1965 Pierre Balmain Haute-Couture Ivory Beaded Metallic Lace Strapless Gown
Breathtaking Pierre Balmain Haute-Couture ivory metallic embroidered lace gown dating back to his 1965 runway collection. This iconic designer created a very sculptural quality which was always allied with a ladylike essence. His garments have a body and a shape of their own. This absolutely stunning formal gown is fashioned from the most luxurious materials and of the finest craftsmanship. The 3-dimensional beadwork creates the perfect amount of drama to this timeless piece. The bodice is a low-cut plunge boned tulle corset strapless with hand applied embellishments in matching hues. The hourglass nipped-waist column construction finished this masterpiece off with the perfect ethereal vibe. I totally see this show-stopper gliding down the red carpet. The pictures say it all.
