1980s Bob Mackie Strapless Lace Evening Gown

 

 

 

Bob Mackie is the undisputed Glam Master. And we think this dress shouts out that fact loud and clear, but then what else would one expect from the man who is infamous for dressing Cher and other less celestial bodies?  Frankly, this gown is a show stopper.   Our skinny, flat-chested (hey, wasn't that Cher's body type?) mannequin doesn't quite fill out the gown's potential, but you get the picture. Off-white lace over a taupe silk chiffon layer, shaped into a strapless column sheath with a deep, boned decollete and accented with a cream silk satin sash and oversized bow at the left hip. The dress zips closed in the back and is slit up to the thigh on the left.  Bust 35" (with about a C cup) under bust (ribcage) 31", waist 27", hip 38",  length at underarm to hem 50"   Also carries a Saks Fifth Avenue label. Excellent condition  $625
