So it's Oscars weekend. The Los Angeles skies are overcast and rain is a 'comin. We say the ultimate way to watch the Oscars is avoid the red carpet and stay home, invite a few friends over, and throw on this ultra chic Geoffrey Beene. This Beene has a great poppy print on lurex stitched trapunto quilted cotton with cut out short sleeves featuring beaded poppies. The obi sash belt can be wrapped twice as we have shown or worn less restricted and long...or wear it sans sash in an homage to a djellaba. They used to call a dress like this a "hostess gown", but we think it deserves a "sexier" description. This Beene is for a woman who doesn't want comfort to sacrifice style. She doesn't need to be a hostess. Rather, she is likely a CEO and Style Icon who entertains effortlessly and adores the late and great Mr. Beene. Perhaps, it's comfort Couture?

Geoffrey Beene poppy print cut out sleeve obi sash evening dress, c. early 1980s. Modern 4 to 8 SOLD
