1950's Ceil Chapman Periwinkle Beaded Rhinestone Lace Cocktail Wiggle Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking 1950's hourglass cocktail dress by the famous "Ceil Chapman" label. This garment is incredibly beautiful in person and equally astounding when one actually sees the level of construction. The blue-lilac periwinkle French chantilly-lace molds itself to the body. It is then covered in swirls of pearls beads and sparkling rhinestones accented throughout the bodice. I love the fully-boned, low-cut plunge with its velvet back-bow sash. The wiggle skirt hugs the hips and is cut close to the leg with a back vent. The hourglass nipped-waist creates that sexy, bombshell silhouette every woman adores. Ceil Chapman is often said to be Marilyn Monroe’s favorite designer and I can totally see why. This dress is flirty and elegant at the same time. Old Hollywood glamour at its best!
