About

This is such a romantic and dramatic cocktail from the iconic "Ceil Chapman" designer label. Perfect for any upcoming party; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty! The garment is fashioned from a fully-lined, rich sage-green French chantilly-lace. The bodice is an exquisite heavily sculptured, boned shelf-bust with scalloped edging. I adore the satin bow-tie accents! A nipped-waist silhouette with seductive slight back-train finishes this garment off with a perfect "femme fatale" vibe. 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.
