1950's Gene Shelly Beaded Sequin Royal-Blue Wool Knit Hourglass Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

1950's Gene Shelly designer garments are in a class of their own. They are always fully-sequined by hand and fit to flatter the figure. This treasure has a fantastic floral pattern, featuring pearl-beadwork around royal-blue jewels. The base is a soft wool-knit and the sequin work is done in the same hue with a touch of iridescent sparkle. Though the neckline is a scooped plunge, the full-length skirt gives a balanced elegance that Gene Shelly is known for. This is the type of dress celebrity vixens, like Marilyn Monroe, made infamous. I totally see this garment gliding down the red carpet.
