Layers of luscious pleats and fine ruching bring forth the elegance of this simply divine vintage 1950's black party cocktail dress by famed American designer Ceil Chapman.

Embracing the Dior inspired “New Look” of the era, the chic Grace Kelly style evening dress is comprised of a lustrous and solid weight silk satin, in a deep jet black with well defined midriff and full pleated skirt.

The classic beauty has spaghetti straps and ruched cross-over bodice a with convertible ‘wing bust’ layering with matching treatment in back – and which can be worn up or down as shown in first pic.

It also has a fitted waist in a pleated cummerbund style, metal zippered back, and a full skirt with soft gathered pleating, particularly in back.

This dress was accompanied by a separate tulle slip (see 4th pic) which I’ve included, and has an embroidered ‘white on black’ Ceil Chapman label.

Very good condition – vibrant, intact, and ready to wear.

Please note measurements as follow and be sure to allow for ease.

Bust – 38 inches
Waist – 29 inches
Hips – Open
Length – 43&1/2 inches (Top of shoulder strap to hem)
