1960s Studded & Embellished Metallic Backless Dress

This dress is so well made and fabulous that it just takes your breathe away. It has no label but I am sure it must have had one at some point. The body of the dress is made of a light weight silk brocade that has a dense covering of gold lame thread running through it and this gives the entire dress a glimmering gold effect. The base color of the dress is a beautiful combination of blue & green which is a pretty contrast against the gold. The skirt is cut to sit with a slight flaring volume and the waist is nipped in above that. The bodice is very sexy with a halter cut and straps that curve up and around the neck. At the back you get an expanse of bare skin except for the two straps that frame either side of your back. Each strap is adorned with a circular pattern done in gold braiding with a an alternating pattern of a blue crystal rhinestone and big gold stud set inside each circle. More braiding and gold studs, beads and little gold metal balls cover the entire front of the bodice. If you love it on the photos you will be even happier when it arrives. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a blue silk and closes with a low back zipper. The halter closes with hook & eye at the back of the neck.
