Vintage 1950's Lilli Diamond Red Silk and Lace Illusion Draped Fishtail Dress



A seductive and highly stylized 1950's cocktail by the famous Lilli Diamond. The silhouette is classic pin-up "femme fatale"; the skirt is deliciously sculpted! The bodice is an alluring thin-strap scalloped illusion design to almost mirror corset boning. My favorite part is the flattering draped ruching around the hips which hide any imperfections. The unique backside fishtail construction will turn any woman into a starlet. You do not easily find this level of workmanship on garments today. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:36 inches Total Length:45 inches This Lilli Diamond designer cocktail is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This garment is over 50 years old and is truly stunning.
