1980s Renato Balestra Attr. Goldenrod Ruched Velvet Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

There are no words to describe this drop-dead-gorgeous, cheetah print, goldenrod yellow, deep-V, vintage bomb shell of a dress. Two clasps keep dress together hitting the breast bone, creating wonderful draping. Additionally draped sleeves give an element of regal beauty if not sexy on the savannah. Belted on dress inside. Lined through back side of dress.

Purchased through Leslie Hindman Auctioneers where many at auction believed it to be an unlabeled Balestra as very similar pieces to this dress were sold at auction that day. Mrs. Couture owner believes it to be Balestra's design and hand as well.

So many ways to wear this dress, here at Mrs. Couture, we don't even know where to begin!

*All Mrs. Couture garments have been professionally cleaned and thoroughly checked before shipping, so that they are ready to wear upon arrival.
