Stunning 1940s rayon crepe gown with the loveliest print-- identical to the dress worn by Salma Hayek in the period film Lonely Hearts ... heck it might even be the dress (I bought from the estate of a long-time East Coast vintage collector). Dress has a collar with a notched lapel that drops into a plunged neckline meeting at two decorative buttons at the front. High waist and a gathered fabric accent at the hip. Side zipper and slight side slit at the hem. Dress has small sewn-in shoulder pads and cap sleeves. Falls beautifully, elegant and eye-catching.

waist: 14.5"

hip: 19"

length: 57.5"


Fits modern S/M best


Condition: Very good. Slight rust stains on buttons. One small stich on sleeve.
