Vintage 1961 Charles Cooper Couture Aqua-Blue Beaded Satin Backless Gown & Coat



With its gorgeous aqua-blue color and flawless "Old Hollywood" silhouette, this Charles Cooper designer satin gown ensemble has the casual elegance the 1960's were known for. The bodice is an alluring sleeveless hourglass nipped waist with a beautiful bow-tie backless design. To this garment, he adds sparkling silver glass-beads, glossy sequins and rhinestones which create so much depth and texture. The design elements alone make this a magnificent work of art. The full slightly-pleated skirt finishes this beauty off with a luxurious regal vibe. The matching full-length bow collar evening coat is a statement piece in itself! Stylish, feminine luxury will never go out of style. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:58 inches This Charles Cooper Couture gown ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. Perfectly working back center metal-zipper. Only sign of age is some faint underarm discolor by the seam and a few minor surface spots to the skirting. Please message for detailed pictures. This designer ensemble is truly exquisite and was worn to the Inauguration Ball of John F. Kennedy as the 35th President.
