1970s Blue & Green Adele Simpson Gown
I love this floating confection of a dress made from layers of rich royal blue with a stunning pop of green mixed in down the front. The upper bodice is gathered in almost bikini style to create shape. I love how the straps come up from the center and then circle the neck - this simple little touch gives it a beautiful goddess feel. Just under the center bust panels of chiffon gather and drape to then flow into the full length skirt. It gives the illusion that the wearer has been wrapped like a Grecian statue in layers and layers of chiffon. The cut also adds height and leanness in the most clever of ways. It is a stunning gown! A really gorgeous piece from a great American designer. Excellent, appears unworn condition.
