Fantastic black rayon 50s cocktail dress with the most amazing cut out ladder neckline. Beautifully princess seamed bodice with 3/4 sleeves. Fitted waist and a flirty bias cut flared full skirt. Back metal zipper to fasten. Unlined. The label is a real treat, a great piece of American Fashion and Broadcasting history: It's by "Ruth Lyons Autograph", a rare label, with only one collection released in 1958. Ruth Lyons was a 40s an 50s TV personality, know for hosting (and pretty much inventing) the first US talk show.
