Elegant!  Pierre Balmain--1952

Balmain is always so gorgeous and intricate. Beaded and sequined embroidered lace dresses by Pierre Balmain, Paris, 1952

"Evening dress, 1950-1955 This evening gown was designed by Pierre Balmain (1914-82), and may have been a debutante's presentation dress. The gown is embellished with ostrich feathers, sequins and rhinestones. Working such a light-weight fabric required great skill, and would have been commissioned from a specialist workshop such as Lesage." (quote) via elisa-rolle.livejournal.com

Evening Dress Pierre Balmain (French) ca. 1950 - 1955 White silk organza trimmed with sequins, rhinestones and ostrich feathers; boned and supported by silk, nylon and tulle; metal hooks and zip
