Nothing more epitomizes sleek style of the 1930′s than a silk charmeuse bias cut gown. The bias cut was invented by designer Madelein Vionnet, and worn by actresses such as Jean Harlow and Greta Garbo. This silk charmeuse gown is the definition of understated elegance with diagonal, curve hugging seams and silk chiffon edging at the neckline and sleeves. The silk is so light and stretchy it just slips on over the head, no zipper necessary!
