1970's Valentino Couture Metallic Gold Green Silk Novelty Frog-Print Gown Set

About

For over forty years Valentino has been one of the most prominent names in fashion, creating some of the world's most elegant and classic designs. It was Valentino's desire to design clothes that would celebrate the female form and accentuate a woman's sensuality. "I don't think any man in the world wants to go out with a woman dressed like a boy," he once said. This breathtaking metallic gown ensemble is a perfect example of his vision. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; shimmering "light as a feather" checkered gold and green silk lame with the most unique frog pond scenic print. The bodice is an elegant short-sleeve scoopneck with hourglass banded nipped-waist. I adore the matching jacket with its wide-cuff billow sleeves and sparkling crystal buttons. The full-length flowing skirt with hidden pockets makes this extraordinary garment so effortlessly easy to wear. A work of wearable art with the imaginativeness so celebrated in the 1970's. Valentino has dressed some of the world's most glamorous people, including Princess Margaret, Julia Roberts and Claudia Schiffer. I totally see this rare show-stopper lighting up any special event! Measurements Dress Bust:34-35 inches Waist:27 inches Hips:up to 44 inches Total Length:58 inches Jacket Sleeve Length:25 inches Total Length:18 inches This Valentino designer couture ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working hand-set back metal zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
