Tantalizing Turquoise

If you really want to POP this awards season, nothing could be better than this Arnold Scaasi ball gown. The bust is highly architectural with ruching at the waist that expands from a small ripple to large folding waves. There is a full skirt with a dramatic built-in crinoline under the satin turquoise silk satin.
For those of you who are not familiar with Scaasi, he is one of the foremost 20th Century American designers (though, he was born in Canada). Scaasi has designed for political figures such as Jackie Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Mamie Eisenhower as well as actresses such as Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor, Catherine Deneuve, and Joan Crawford. We guarantee he did not hang any of his beautiful gowns on a WIRE HANGER.
Simply put, this is an amazing gown, in a fantastic color, designed by an American icon.
