    Description

    Dixie Carter Gorgeous Screen-Worn Cocktail Suit, 2001. Worn by Dixie Carter as Carol, the mother of the bride in the 2001 comedy The Big Day, the suit jacket with two rhinestone buttons is in a silk faille with cuffs and lapel in silk satin and is accompanied by a skirt in two layers of silk chiffon, wired at the hem creating a wave, over a peach charmeuse lining. A favorite of Dixie's and worn on numerous occasions, she remembers this beautifully flowing suit as having been designed by Oscar de la Renta, and though a third button under the lapel is missing, the suit is in Very Fine condition. From the Dixie Carter Collection.
