1950's Ceil Chapman Sapphire-Blue Butterfly Novelty-Print Silk Evening Ball Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is such a breathtaking 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 a stunning sapphire-blue novelty butterfly-garden print silk-taffeta which really shimmers under the light. The bodice is an exquisite sculpted scoopneck with an hourglass cummerbund nipped-waist. I love the backside wing design which finishes this garment off with a perfect "femme fatale" vibe. 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. This ballgown is seductive and elegant at the same time. Old Hollywood glamour at its best in a rare larger size!
