Beaded silk velvet evening ensemble, c.1940. I love the haunting beauty of the deep rich green hue. The strapless dress features a softly draped skirt with a provocatively deep slit. The unlined bolero style jacket, open in front, reveals the low-cut neckline of the dress. The jacket and dress bodice are embellished with sparkling bouquets of rhinestones and clear crystal beads. What a dramatic and sophisticated fashion statement!
