Weekend Eye Candy: Jean Desses Evening Gown, 1952

Feast your eyes on the genius of haute couture.  Jean Desses created this stunning gown for the spring of 1952.  White satin is molded to fit the body with tucks galore on the bodice.  And look how the yards of fabric used for the overskirt fall gracefully from those folds at the hips.  This gown is an architectural wonder.  Wouldn't you love to get a peek at the construction?
