About

This is such a romantic and dramatic cocktail-length dress from the iconic "Ceil Chapman" label. Perfect for a spring or summer wedding; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty! The garment is fashioned from a stunning mocha-latte shimmer silk-taffeta. The bodice is an exquisite button-down fitted nipped-waist with cuffed sleeves. A sweeping full circle-skirt ruched with circle-swirls finishes off this masterpiece with a perfect "new look" silhouette. 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!
