Bob Mackie gold beaded dress, circa 1980

About

An incredibly glamorous gown by Bob Mackie, this piece is the ultimate choice for a red carpet event! The strapless dress is embroidered with thousands of gold bugle beads to create a tiger print pattern, and is scattered with clear rhinestones for extra sparkle. The flattering hourglass silhouette is enhanced by an exaggerated sweet heart neckline, and a split up the front to reveal the leg adds the finishing touch to this dazzling dress. Well known for using beading and sequins in his designs Bob Mackie has a huge celebrity fan base, including Cher, Diana Ross and Judy Garland. He began his career working for couturier Jean Louis before moving to Paramount studios and being spotted by costume designer Edith Head. He has designed for many television shows, films and tours earning accolades such as Emmy awards and Oscar nominations.
