When you arrive at the party… 💃 1958 Arnold Scaasi evening dress, worn by Arlene Francis, white and metallic with rhinestones, interior corset and ruby red satin coat. @mfaboston According to a designer biography provided by @metmuseum: 'Arnold Scaasi, the designer of this ball gown, is best known for his evening wear designs, worn by a long list of celebrity clients primarily during the 1960s through the 1980s. Scaasi's work incorporates lavish surface decoration, often in the form of floral trimming, bright colors and full silhouettes that extend the proportions of the body.' #fashionhistory #fashionmuseum #fashionhistorian #fashionstudies #dresshistory #dressmuseum #costumemuseum #costumehistory #historyoffashion #historyofdress #historyofcostume #1950sfashion
