HOLLYWOOD'S GO-TO DESIGNER JEAN LOUIS
Jean Louis famously designed Rita Hayworth's Gilda gown...enough said. That dress is so iconic and worthy of the "genius" description bestowed too often. Here is a Jean Louis evening gown from the late 1960s made for his former house model. An athletic-cut shoulder in yellow chiffon with fantastic Swarovski-crystal floral bursts that is centered with a gold bugle bead waist band. The bugle beads continue down the slit of the dress which has a sarong-style shape.
Jean Louis yellow chiffon and bugle bead Swarovski flower burst gown. Circa late 1960s. Modern size 4 to 6 SOLD
