This is an exquisite and alluring, two-toned turquoise, taffeta strapless gown with a fitted bodice trimmed with a tulle ruffle, a gracefully draped skirt with ruching accentuated with a large silk turquoise rose at the left hip, and a flowing panel of contrasting pale turquoise at each hip then being incorporated into the full floor length skirt. The gown has a back zipper for closure and is in near mint condition with the exception of a couple of faint tan-colored marks and a couple of tiny snags in the taffeta in the interior pale turquoise section of the back of the gown approximately 12"to 18" up from the gown's hem line. They are not visible when the gown is being worn. My last two images show these minor flaws. The gown measures 33" to 34" around its bust line and 27" to 28" around its waist line. This glamorous and sumptuous creation epitomizes the mid-century, post war, return to sophisticated feminine allure. It evokes female sensuality with both an innocent and suggestive quality. This anonymous designer could have probably been influenced by Charles James, as so many of the designers of that same time period had been.
