Sold - CHRISTIAN DIOR 1970s Vintage Silk Lamé Evening Dress Size M-L

A spectacular Christian Dior evening dress from the 1970s featuring a wonderfully airy, floaty cut. The dress is made of two layers of fine, sheer silk chiffon - the bottom layer pain green, the top layer shot with gold-tone and black metal threads forming a beautiful pattern. The dress features a round neckline, internal bra strap keepers, long billowing sleeves with buttoned cuffs (three buttons each) and closes with two buttons at the back of the neck. The overall cut is very relaxed, wide and floaty. The dress comes with an ultra-long, wide belt that can be used for a more fitted appearance. Generally, this dress is quite a versatile piece - it can be worn with or without the belt, and the long belt can be tied in many ways (and could also be worn separately as a scarf or headband). The dress comes with its original long underskirt with an elasticated waist. 52% lurex, 48% silk. Made in France.
