1960's Marilyn Red Velvet Wiggle Bustle Can Can Dress-M

Here's a very special & next to impossible to find vintage evening dress perfect for the upcoming holiday parties. You'll be the talk of the party in this number! Red velvet, fitted, strapless boned bodice, sexy evening dress that Marilyn Monroe would have been happy to have worn. It reminds us of her pink dress in the Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend video... except it's red. The bodice is fitted through the hips for a slimming sexy shape but has ruched gathers about the top of the thighs in front. The red bustle in back is a sexy puffy satin with fabric roses & snaps on & off. Dress zips in back, fully lined, walking slit in back of pencil skirt. We think this was made late 60's - to mid 70's but it's a VERY 50's style party dress.

Condition Details: No holes or stains to the velvet. Only Minor Wear. Inside liner has some stains on the bodice but they do not in any way show thru to outside. Small repairs to boning inside. The only flaw to velvet is on the back edge of bodice where it was one hung with a hanger with teeth. Velvet is just slightly crushed there...very small & minor.
