Dior LDB 1960s



#2636 $450

Dior New York little black cocktail dress, 1960s

Slip into this delicious LBD and liberate your inner Audrey Hepburn as seen in Breakfast at Tiffanys. The iconic 1961 film re-established the LBD at the pinnacle of high fashion. All you need to play the role of Holly Golightly is our dress and a long cigarette holder.

Made from black wool crepe, this beauty comes from Dior New York (ready-to-wear) and was sold in Saks Fifth Avenue. It is lined with black China silk and closes in back with a nylon coil zipper and hooks.

There is a wide ruffled hem border of black taffeta, which curves upward to a large taffeta rose at the base of the plunging neckline.

Since Chanel introduced the little black dress in 1926, it has become the epitome of chic. Dior's version makes a dramatic fashion statement. There is nothing so memorable to a man as the first time he sees a woman whose manner and dress capture his imagination once and for all.

In December 2006 the best-known LBD, the Givenchy model worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffanys, was sold at auction for over $800,000. Buy our LBD instead of the original Audrey dress, and you will save $800,000 :)

The condition is excellent and wearable.

The size is marked 10. A vintage 10 is more like a contemporary 6.
It measures: 38" bust, 34" waist, 38" hip, and 40" from shoulder to hem.
