Cissy in Pink Satin Gown with Stole (#24)
Reminiscent of the glamour of Ava Gardner, this dark haired Cissy (1956) has a haunting beauty. The mauve pink satin formal gown is styled with princess seams to emphasize her long lean figure. Pink satin ribbon shoulder straps and lovely blossoms in complimentary shades of lavender adorn the top of the bodice. Underneath, her petticoat is fashioned from scalloped pink lace. Silver high heeled sandals, "diamond" earrings and solitaire ring. The soft grey "nutria" shrug gives this Cissy all of the glamour of Old Hollywood. There is harmony in the beauty of Cissy's face and her elegant ensemble. Wrist tag. $2400.
