Who Wore It Better?

A RARE vintage client! Because you will never see a woman in a dress from RARE vintage who ends up on the Who Wore It Better page. When you buy vintage haute couture you buy more than a piece of fashion history, you buy a unique piece and a sense of mystery. No side by side comparison because there is no comparison!

Here is a spectacular and unusual dress from Balestra. Our RARE vintage readers and clients know that we like to offer you rare and exceptional pieces that are not easily found. Renato Balestra started his fashion house in Rome in 1960. His dresses were worn by Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor and the very stylish, Farah Pahlavi, Empress of Iran. Our early 1980s Balestra is a silk gazar one-shoulder extravaganza with a poufed sleeve. The exuberant pink floral print is perfect for a summer party where you do not exactly feel like blending in. The draped green bodice reigns in the exuberance to keep it from getting a little too bubbly and making it perfect. Size 4.
