1979 Liza Minnelli Celebrity-Worn Andre Van Pier Couture Ivory Silk Beaded Dress
A gorgeous and unforgettable Liza Minnelli custom couture Andre Van Pier bias-cut dress dating back to 1979. Andre Van Pier was an American fashion designer best known for his highly glamorous looks as well as his over the top obsession with exquisite detailed beadwork. His work has been featured in numerous top publications like Vogue, Bazaar and Cosmopolitan. This beautiful garment designed for Liza Minnelli comes with detailed letter of authenticity from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. The dress is fashioned in high quality mid-weight ivory creme silk with long cascading rows of pearls and white iridescent bugle beads hand sewn into place. Horizontal rows of pearl beads are also beneath the vertical dangling beads and impact is grand. The bodice has a low-cut plunge trimmed with silver glass Swarovski crystals. I love that seductive criss-cross backless design. A designer piece like this is a one-of-a-kind couture treasure and a true piece of celebrity fashion history.
