About

Stunning 1951 custom-made couture bombshell cocktail dress from the famous "Old England of Bruxelles" label. The bodice is an alluring low-cut plunge fully-boned strapless.

The construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of dress you will reach for anytime you want to look like a starlet! The perfect "little black dress".
