1950s - 1960s Vintage Turquoise Silk Beaded Cocktail Dress Bust 36.
Stunning, and fabulous. Must have for a retro event.
Dress measurements: Bust 36, under bust 28, waist 30, hip 38, length from should to hem 42.
Over the top vintage dress by Peggy Hunt from the late 50s to early 60s. Brilliant turquoise blue silk chiffon, beaded and sequin bodice and bonus scarf or shawl. Above excellent condition!
The sleeveless, one piece dress has a square scoop front neckline and a deeply scooped back neckline.
The fitted bodice has an over layer of lace with a scalloped hem. The hem "floats" over waistline.
This overlayer is lavishly beaded with wine colored faux pearls and brilliant turquoise sequins.
The skirt joins the bodice slightly above the natural waist line. The skirt has a slim, smooth fit. This is the classic, "wiggle dress" silhouette. The dress is fully lined, has a back metal zipper and the famous PEGGY HUNT label inside.
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.
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 late 50s and early 60s. It is a stunning example of her luxury line.
Dress measurements: Bust 36, under bust 28, waist 30, hip 38, length from should to hem 42. Check measurements carefully against a similar dress that you own. Pay close attention to the waist measurement!
