1970s Anthony Muto Sequined Red Gingham Dress

 

 

 

 

A little bit country, a little bit - 1940's high style. A first glance may invite the snap judgment that this dress is glammed-up country hoe-down. But look again, and you see the glamorous side of this dress - clearly harkening to the Forties, when top Hollywood designers were adding eye catching details to everyday wear, creating movie-star worthy designs. Red and white gingham is cut in a modified bib over-all style with a crossed-strap back. Serpentine rows of opalescent sequins cast over the entire dress yank the country girl right out of this baby and give it high-falutin star quality. Designed by Anthony Muto for Marita, the dress features a cut-in shoulder line, and a tie belt at the waist. Back zip closure. Bust 33", waist 24", hip   length.   Excellent condition. $265
