Irene Lentz dressed some of the greatest film icons of the 20th century:
Ginger Rogers
Hedy Lamar
Claudette Colbert
Carole Lombard
Ingrid Bergman
Loretta Young
Doris Day
Lana Turner.

If the icons above aren't endorsement enough that Irene Lentz knew how to design a great dress, what could be better than a ménage a trois of Irene's custom gowns that were made for a family friend and are now available at Decades.   All three dresses are a modern size 8 to a small 10 and exude the glamour of Irene's designs from the 1940s and 1950s.

The black satin evening gown gathers at the waist with a dramatic bustle.  Just add diamonds.  The black satin scoop evening dress with bronze floral skirt is minimal but with maximum sophistication.  Finally, the sari silk turquoise cocktail dress with silver embroidery is patiently awaiting Mad Men's Christina Hendricks to make it come to life.  I am mad for these dresses, no pun attended.
