"Silk Chiffon & Rhinestones" Vintage Late 1950's Silk Chiffon & Rhinestone Dress UK 6 US 2


This sparkling late 1950's London red silk chiffon dress, embellished with silver claw set rhinestones, is not one for the faint of heart.

The straight cut neckline is framed by thin shoulder straps embellished with double strands of claw set rhinestones. The fitted bodice is decorated with a large and tight scattering of silver claw set rhinestones. The cinched in waistline is accented by a rolled silk pipped detail, drawing the eye to the elegant wiggle cut of the skirt-line, which is accented by a light scattering of claw set rhinestones, completing this dress in an eye-catching and iconic late 1950's silhouette.
