Late 1980s Mike Benet Formals sequin dress

"Talk to me Harry Winston! Tell me all about it!"

 

The epitome of vintage glamooooour! This show-stopping number from the late 1980's/early 90s, by high quality prom, pageant and formal gown designer Mike Benet Formals,  in a gorgeous deep, raspberry fuchsia, was clearly intended as an 80s twist on Marilyn's famous pink gown. She is in sparkling pristine mint condition! Ready to be draped in diamonds of all shapes and sizes.

 

(vintage jewelry set pictured for effect is from my personal collection. Sorry. Not for sale)

Full length column skirt in high quality silk taffeta with sexy front leg slit. Ruffled peplum waist and shoulder detail with fantastic over-sized bow.  Fully lined.  Closes with original hidden long back zipper and 3 hook & eyes also all original (one at the top of the zipper, one at the waist and one to connect the peplum - pictured in last few slides above).  Made in U.S.A.
