1960s Malcolm Starr Rhinestone Encrusted Ivory Dress

 

 

 

And boy is this dress ever encrusted!  Malcolm Starr's dresses are usually show stoppers, and this one is no exception. Rhinestoned and sequined to within an inch of it's gorgeous life, this dress is heavily adorned with rhinestones across the wide neckline and again at the hem of the short sleeve, then merely exuberantly scattered across the rest of the midweight ivory crepe fabric. Sheer simplicity in a sheath style, it's pleated at either seam in the back to create a panel, with a zippered closure in the left seam.  Made by Malcolm Starr, this was a full length gown which the original owner had professionally shortened, and we think it was a brilliant move.  Too much of a good thing is sometimes, well, too much.  As it is now, this dress is perfect for a night at the tables in Vegas, dancing in South Beach, or  dinner at your favorite restaurant. Bust 38", waist 36", hip 37", shoulder 17", sleeve 7", length 38.5".  Except for a few faint smudges at the very edge of the hemline, its in excellent condition. sold
