    Barbara Mandrell Gown. Barbara Mandrell's fame became huge in the 70s and 80s due to her string of hit singles and popular television variety series. Performing as a solo artist or along with her sisters, Louise and Irlene, the Mandrell name still shines brightly on the musical horizon. This gorgeous gown has an impressive story to go with it. In the July 1981 issue of Nashville's Music City News, there appeared an article about Mandrell's donation of this gown to the Country Music Wax Museum. She mentions that she wore the gown the night she gave a command performance for President and Mrs. Jimmy Carter. This elegant, strapless gown with detached wrist to elbow sleeves is designed by Patsy Sledd Vantrease of Nashville. The gown is in pristine condition except for a hem rip on one of the elbow sleeves, which could easily be repaired. A fantastic lot.
