About

Stunning, GEOFFREY BEENE 1970's silk evening dress.

It is well known that Geoffrey Beene was very much influenced by Gilbert Adrian, and his designs for the great MGM, Hollywood actresses of the 1930's. This dress is a great example of that.

The main body of the dress is made of pure silk charmeuse in gray/beige tone, and features a sweetheart style neckline which is attached to semi-sheer, silk organza at the top shoulder/sleeve panels.

The main body of the dress features a functioning, center-front placket with clear, rhinestone button closures.

The front bodice is gathered at the bust, and extends into a tie back sash.

A similar Geoffrey Beene dress with the same sweetheart/placket construction is part of the Met Museum archive:

Made in the USA, as labeled

Vintage US size label 10, suits a modern US 8/10. Please note that the sash/tie back construction makes the fit of the dress fairly adjustable.
