  • Preowned Michael Novarese 1960s Vintage Ballgown Dress Gold Floral Lame Audrey Hepburn
    More info
    Preowned Michael Novarese 1960s Vintage Ballgown Dress Gold Floral Lame Audrey Hepburn
    This Strapless Formal Vintage Dress Was Designed By Michael Novarese In The 1960's. I Purchased It 10 Years Ago From An Individual Who Claimed That It Originally Belonged To Audrey Hepburn. The Story Actually Seemed Very True To Me, Call It An Experienced Gut Response, But The Person Did Not Have Documentation, And I Have Been Unable To Find A Photograph Of Audrey Wearing The Gown. I Have Finally Decided To Sell The Dress, And Though I Haven't Been Able To Document That It Belonged To Audrey Hepburn, It Is Still A Stunning Vintage Evening Gown And Someone Is Sure To Fall In Love With It! The Dress Has "boning", 2 Layers Of Tulle Underskirts, And A Back Zipper. There Is A Pretty Bow At The Top Of The Bodice, And The Lame Fabric Is A Beautiful Abstract Pattern With Shades Of Green, Gold, Orange And Black. The Dress Is Very Small And Would Be Equivalent To A Modern Day 00.Bust: 30"Waist: 20"Hips: FreeLength From Under Arm To Waist: 8"Length From Waist In Front: 42"Length From Waist In Back: 44"

    Michael Novarese Designed Gowns For Many Of The Stars During The 60S-80S Including The Likes Of Jane Russell, Liza Minelli, Judy Garland, Dinah Shore, Elizabeth Taylor And Many Others. I Love His Work, Particularly The Earlier Pieces From The 60S And Seventies Like This One. This Particular One Is Amazing And A Really Great Representation Of His Work. I Love The Bold Sleeves And How They Are Cut With A Slightly Puffed Feel Near The Shoulder And Keep Wide And Full As They Near The Cuff. The Bodice Is Simple, With A Square Cut To The Neckline, And It Is Cut To Skim Over The Bust For A Flattering Fit. The Waist Has A More Generous Cut To It But Could Be Easily Cinched In To Add Shape By A Wide Silk Ribbon Or A Belt. From There The Skirt Flows To The Floor In A Gently Widening A-Line That Really Allows The Spectacular Fabric To Take Center Stage. The Cut Is Left Deliberately Simple So That The Fabric Can Shine - In Person I Think You Will Be Delighted By How Wonderful It Is. The Ribbon Woven Silk Has A Floral Print Interspersed With Bands Of Black And Gold That Catch The Light Beautifully. It Is Very Light So The Gown Is Easy To Wear. Excellent, Appears Unworn Condition.The Bodice And Skirt Are Lined In A Black Silky Satin Rayon. The Sleeves Have A Lining Of A Black Silk Organza And This Is Also Placed Under The Exterior Fabric Of The Skirt. It Closes With A Back Painted Metal Zipper.Sleeves: 19"Shoulders: Inset At 13", The Shoulders Sits Under The Cap Of The Sleeve Not At These SeamsBust: 17.5" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamWaist: 14" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamHips: OpenBodice: 15" From Shoulder To WaistSkirt: 43" From Waist To HemModern Sizing Equivalent: Sml-MedThis Garment Has Been Professionally Cleaned, Pressed And Is Odor Free.

I Love His Work, Particularly The Earlier Pieces From The 60S And Seventies Like This One. The Color Alone Gives It That High Impact And The Choice Of Fabric And Chiffon Is Wonderful As It Creates A Beautiful Flowing Effect Once On. The Cut Is Romantic And Beautiful With Tiers And Layers Of Fine Silk Chiffon Floating Over Each Other. The Entire Gown Has A Feeling Of Airiness And Lightness With Its Dramatic Asymmetrical Layers That Run Over Both The Skirt And The Sleeves. To Balance The Layers Of The Skirt And Sleeve, The Bodice Has Been Kept Simple And Sweet With A Softly Scooped Neckline That Is Cut Wide For A Touch Of Collarbone To Show. A Silk Chiffon Belt In The Same Red Cinches The Waist To Give The Dress Shape Or You Can Wear It Without And Keep The Cut More Loose And Easy And Caftan Feeling. Excellent Condition.Lined In A Matching Red Silk And Closes With A Series Of Hook & Eye And Snaps That Conceal The Zipper From The Waist Down As To Not Interfere With The Line Of The Skirt.
