A slit, rounded at the hem, rises from the center of the skirt to mid-thigh height. The gown is finished with a "V" front belt. The gown and belt are hand beaded. At the neckline and wrist edge are five rows of bugle beads. The bodice, sleeves and skirt are beaded in vertical stings of white bugle beads with 1/4" spacing between rows. The belt has random overall beading in white bugle beads, and is edged in three rows of bugle beads. The gown is fully lined with white chiffon, with a series of snaps tied into the lining to secure lingerie straps, and an elastic strip running from shoulder to zipper in a "catch" stitch.

Included in this lot is a reproduced color image of Joan Collins wearing the gown, standing next to Elizabeth Taylor at a dinner for Princess Margret. Very Fine condition with yellowed spot at the back top right of the skirt and some very faint discoloration on the skirt front. Some small holes and pulling are evident in the lining at the hem.
