Huey Waltzer Beaded Qipao Column Gown, 1997

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A perennial favorite of femmes fatale for its lean, body-conscious silhouette, the cheongsam—with its high neckline and asymmetrically-fastened bodice—effortlessly unites modesty and seduction, making it an ideal choice for evening wear. With thousands of microscopic, multi-faceted seed beads, this model offers even more glamor by glimmering subtly from every angle. The two-foot side slit doesn’t hurt either.

Close-fitting cheongsam column gown with all over beaded vine motif, cap sleeves and notched banded neckline; faux asymmetrical front with five ornamental pavé bead buttons from left underarm to center throat. Rear zipper closure with top hook and eye; 26 ½” left side slit. Lined at upper bodice only.
