1960s Vintage Turquoise Silk Beaded Cocktail Dress Mad Men

Stunning vintage dress by Hollywood designer, Peggy Hunt from the early 60s. Brilliant turquoise blue silk chiffon, beaded and sequin bodice and bonus scarf or shawl. Pristine condition, Mad Men era glamour gown.

Dress measurements: Bust 36, under bust 28, waist 30, hip 38, length from should to hem 42.

The sleeveless, one piece dress has a square scoop front neckline and a deeply scooped back neckline.

The bodice has an over layer of scalloped lace. This Fauxlero layer is lavishly beaded with wine colored faux pearls and brilliant turquoise sequins. This hem of this piece "floats" over the waist line.

The skirt joins the bodice above the natural waist line. It is smoothly fitted for a significant "wiggle dress" silhouette.

Fully lined with a back metal zipper and the famous PEGGY HUNT label.

The scarf / shawl is a voluptuous length of bias cut silk chiffon. It is a shade or two lighter than the gown. It has a bias sweep of 92 inches.

Scarf measurements: 50 inches long and each side has a sweep of 92 inches, all bias cut.

Condition is ABOVE EXCELLENT. It appears to have only been worn once or twice. It is clean and ready to wear.

I am not SURE how the scarf is meant to be worn. It is so lavishly wonderful you can use it anyway you like!

Peggy Hunt designed for Marlene Dietrich, Betty Davis and Mary Pickford. Known for glamorous evening and cocktail gowns her pieces were worn by Lucille Ball and Anne Miller.

This dress carries Ms Hunt's label used in the 60s. It is a stunning example of her luxury line.
