Vintage 1950's Frank Starr Beaded Sequin Ivory Satin Tulle-Skirted Bridal Dress



Breathtaking mid-1950's ivory white bridal dress by the highly adored label "Frank Starr". Ruth Goude was the leading designer for the brand and an innovator of the 'New Look' that gained popularity after World War II. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; high-quality luxurious silk satin that has been expertly embellished. Beaded, sequin floral appliques with little clusters of prong set rhinestones and pearls make up the most stunning motif. This beautiful design runs over the thin-strap scoop neck bodice and also across the front full-skirt. The tulle overlay adds the perfect touch to this ethereal look. The construction of this dress is impeccable and would make a beautiful bridal moment. Measurements Bust: 33-34 inches Waist: 24 inches Hips: Free Sweep Total Length:48 inches This Frank Starr designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or discoloration. Perfectly working side metal-zipper. Only sign of wear is the side seams look like they were taken in and then let out. Please message of detailed pictures. This dress is over 60 years old and is truly stunning.
