1950s Bombshell Red Sequin & Bead Gown

Va-voom! This is a dress like no other. It is the perfect 1950s Hollywood starlet gown and made even better since it has been done in a jaw dropping ruby red. The entire dress is cut to follow and fit your every curve - and to create them if they are not already there. It is completely covered in red tube beads and iridescent red sequins. This gives the gown a seemingly inner glow and the fabric almost feels alive once on. I love how they used the density of the bead and sequin work to create a subtle but apparent difference between the bodice and skirt. It is sleeveless and plunges at both the front and back into deep V's. You won't be missed in this beautiful gown. In person the color is a touch deeper and richer. The camera also does not catch how it reflects the light. It's like wearing rubies from head to toe. Magnificent! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a red silky rayon and closes with a painted metal zipper. Hook & eye at the waist and V of the back to help hide the zipper so the line remains unbroken. The slit on the ones side of the hem goes up 14". Hand finished inside
