Glamorous vintage 1980s designer cocktail dress.

✧ by Bob Mackie -- American couture designer, famous for dressing the likes of Cher, Carol Burnett, + Diana Ross in the 1970s + 1980s
✧ sold at Saks Fifth Avenue
✧ gorgeous black fabric with a low sheen -- rustles like taffeta + looks like silk
✧ strapless neckline with bits of peach mesh, chantilly lace, + rhinestones peeking out
✧ asymmetrical wrap styling with peplum + sarong wrap skirt
✧ boned bodice + reinforced bust for shape + support
✧ fully lined
✧ fastens up the back with a covered zipper

This dress is an absolute red carpet dream. Bob Mackie really was such a genius in his heyday, and this dress is a perfect example of his artistry -- it is so well made, and done so with such obvious attention to detail, that you will be a little bit in awe of it everytime you slip it on or just hold it in your hands. I adore the asymmetrical wrap detailing, the nod to the classic 1950s wiggle shape, and the 'eyelashing' of chantilly lace and black and clear rhinestones peeking out the top. With a heavy dose of glamour and a classic yet avant-garde shape, this dress would be perfect to wear to a gala, to the opera, for a red carpet event, or for any other especially special and formal occasion. A breathtaking gem of a dress in like-new condition!

This beautiful designer dress was made over 20 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!
