1970s Frank Usher Grecian Draped Beaded Jersey Dress
Supermodel length and made of yards and yards of a fabulous white jersey that drapes and moves divinely, this Frank Usher dress will make you feel like a Grecian Goddess. Everything about it feels like it belongs on the red carpet and it has a fabulous sexiness to it. The white jersey drapes to perfection and the cut is wonderful and flattering. It is cut completely on the bias so the dress falls and drapes to follow your curves. The skirt is long and lean with a tremendous amount of fabric in it - when you are standing still it falls in a graceful column but when you move you get a nice sweep of fabric. The waist is defined by a hand applied banding of tube beads mixed with little silver balls. The bodice of the dress has strong shoulders that somehow still feel soft and feminine, with the fabric falling from the shoulders in soft pleats. At the front it is cut to plunge to the waist. The back is closed with a series of fabric covered buttons and they are set so you get a glimpse of skin through each. It is old Hollywood Madame Gres meets Studio 54 with a great mix of elegance, sexiness and a feeling of timelessness. Excellent condition
