1960s Glam Beaded Malcolm Starr Gown

Seriously a stunning stunning dress - this silk crepe gown from Malcolm Starr is an absolutely amazing piece that would have been red carpet ready for the greatest of starlets back in its day and is a serious little beauty for a modern girl choice now. The silk cream is a good heavy weight and pristine. Over this is a abstract swirled design done entirely in interior silver painted glass tube beads. These same beads are then hand applied in tight rows to follow all the edges - the neckline, arms and waist all get this glamour treatment. That same band then extends form the neckline detailing down the entire front of the dress. Stunning silhouette and cut. It's really a beauty and it is in excellent, unworn condition!
