INCREDIBLE Helena Barbieri Celery & Black Taffeta Asymmetrical 1950's Bombshell Gown
Item v4795 ... Price: $465 SOLD
POSITIVELY STUNNING... a head turner for sure! An unbelievable 1950's Helena Barbieri evening gown in celery (really a very yellowish green) and black striped silk taffeta with rich black satin. Strapless bodice. Gown has a STUNNING asymmetrical taffeta skirt over a slim black satin skirt. Pleated at the left hip and accented with a dramatic flounce. Point of the taffeta hem is weighted. Side metal zipper. Bodice is boned. Interior waistband with hook and eye. "Helena Barbieri Original," label. To see a close up of the bodice, please click here.

Condition: In good, wearable condition but certainly not perfect. Freshly dry cleaned and pressed. There are three slightly larger than pin holes on the bodice. There are the remnants of 5 orange spots (the smallest is about the size of a dime, the largest is silver dollar sized) in and around the pleats at the left hip. One is completely hidden. The other four are visible but I think you can probably tack the pleats to hide them for the most part. To see the largest of these, please click here (in the photo I have outlined the spot in blue so that you can see it). There is one additional pea sized spot on the skirt and there is some faint underarm marking at the very edges of the underarms. Priced accordingly for a Helena Barbieri dress of this caliber.
