1950's Seductive Royal-Blue Sequin Rayon-Crepe Strapless Trained Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

In this gorgeous 1950's custom-made couture garment, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern haute-couture. This captivating gown is fashioned from rich rayon crepe in a stunning royal blue-purple color. Swirls of iridescent sequins add the perfect amount of sparkle and texture. The bodice is an alluring low-cut plunge, sweetheart strapless. The silhouette is unbelievable; a flattering nipped-waist met by a tulle train to give illusion of a more hourglass body curve. I love the center slit front which truly channels the perfect "femme fatale" vibe. I totally imagine this gliding down the red carpet!
