1960s Chiffon Beaded Gown (No. J7915). A diaphanous chiffon shawl drifts elegantly over this devastatingly gorgeous evening gown made of silky viscose. The bodice is elaborately embellished with sequins, rhinestones, and pearl embroidery. Double spaghetti strap at each shoulder. Invisible zipper and hook and eye closure at center back. Imported.
