1960s Black Silk Beaded Malcolm Starr

Sometimes that little black dress that you can pop on and it is the perfect marriage of ease, sophistication and yet still have that pow factor is a hard thing to find. This wonderful piece from Malcolm Starr just might be a contender. Off the body it seems rather plain but once on it has a way of draping and sitting that is infinitely flattering. A very simple cut - it is basically a chic sheath with a waist that is barely defined, it skims the body almost flapper style and the crepe gives it a good weight so it seems to settle where it is meant to do the most good. The bodice has a flattering V neck and the skirt cut long and lean. Over the entire dress is a wonderful "fireworks" type design with each burst of beads defined by a 3D raised circle of glossy black tube beading all swirled around each other. The waist, neck and arms are defined with a tight band of beading. Very pretty piece and in great condition.
