Geoffrey Beene Satin Dress

This wonderful snakeskin patterned dress has quite a history, Vogue Magazine featured the dress in a full page layout in 1971. I was lucky enough to sell it to, and then purchase it back from, the wardrobe department for the film American Gangster.

The round collarless neckline and long sleeves belie the sexy fit and thigh high slit of this satin dress from Geoffrey Beene. There is a concealed zipper at the center of the dress and fabric covered buttons on the left side. The long fringed scarf is attached at this side. Vogue showed it wrapped around the neck several times, creating a turtleneck effect. The long sleeves have metal hooks and eyes at the wrist for a snug fit, and the dress is fully lined in cream colored silk.

Retailed by Amelia Gray in Beverly Hills this sexy snakeskin patterned dress is in pristine condition, and it is ready for your next starring role.
