1950's Ceil Chapman Beaded Sequin Green Ruched Satin One-Shoulder Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is such a seductive and dramatic evening gown from the iconic Ceil Chapman designer label. Perfect for any upcoming event; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty! The garment is fashioned from stunning mid-weight green silk satin. Sparkling glass beads and sequins are then added throughout; giving the garment so much depth and texture. The bodice is an exquisite heavily ruched asymmetric one-shoulder design. I love the sculpted sarong style skirting 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!
