2010 Cher Custom Bob Mackie Couture Black Velvet Bias-Cut Golden Globes Gown
Own a breathtaking, well documented piece of fashion and celebrity history. An important, one-of-a-kind Bob Mackie custom couture black stretch velvet hourglass bias-cut gown specially made for his dear friend, Cher. This seductive look was worn by this iconic superstar to the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards as she walked the red carpet and appeared on stage with Christina Aguilera. That night, Cher wore a yellow, red and blue ribbon signifying support for the people of Haiti and this ribbon is still attached. Bob Mackie designed this incredibly gorgeous gown with Cher's signature hourglass body hugging style in mind. The fabrics used are glorious; a high quality flattering black stretch velvet with a middle nude illusion lace panel. The front is designed to simulate a laced-up boned corset and is accented with magnificent jet stone buttons surrounded by sparkling crystals. My favorite design element is the chic asymmetric thin laced upper bodice; so unique and eye-catching. The lean, long sleeves mixed with the basque waistline gives it an elevated gothic vibe which I love. The trained bias-cut skirting finishes this masterpiece off with such Old Hollywood glamour. Custom couture Bob Mackie pieces are rare, as they were not mass produced and were incredibly expensive to make. Bob Mackie has dressed many legends- Madonna, Tina Turner, Marilyn Monroe, Diana Ross, Judy Garland and Carol Burnett among them. There’s one special relationship that withstood the test of time- Cher. When Mackie met Cher in 1967 on The Carol Burnett Show, for which he designed the costumes, the two became instant best friends. Mackie is the mastermind behind some of Cher’s greatest looks. About her remarkable ability to wear his designs, Mackie once remarked: "There hasn't been a woman in the limelight since Garbo or Dietrich who could pull off such outrageous visual fantasies while maintaining her individual beauty". With Cher worn garments recently fetching over $100,000 at auction, here is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a custom-made Cher gown designed by Bob Mackie worn for such an important event. We even have a very special hand written note from Cher, on her personal stationary, to insure complete authenticity of this sensational gown.
