Around two weeks ago Iman received a Walk of Style award on Rodeo Drive. She did not wear this Michaele Vollbracht bugle beaded leopard print wrap dress with leather sash that she wore in Ebony back in 1981. However, if she had, I don't think you would be able to tell the difference as she is ageless and appears as gorgeous in 2011 and she did back in 1981.

I am a Vollbracht fan and have noticed his pieces are selling for high prices lately at auctions. He may be most famous for designing the iconic Face Print bag for Bloomingdales, but one cannot discount his talents as a designer and as an illustrator. I suppose his illustration abilities are a perfect combo to being a clothing designer since he can utilitze his graphic confidence to make dresses that are wearable works of art wothout looking too much like "art to wear".

Iman-endorsed and Cameron-approved!

Michaele Vollbracht bugle bead leopard print wrap dress with leather attached leather sash, 1981. Marked size S, and flexible sizing from a modern 4 to a small 8. SOLD
