^ me too, makes everything shimmer :D Interesting too to see the neck line has been somewhat brought forward into "mao" designs in the past few years.

Thanks for posting operagirl

I too, love the first dress.

Travilla, who designed it, was at the beginning of his illustrious career:

I just came from the auction. The first dress, in person, is magnificent. The beading was so intricate it must have blinded some poor person to do it. FYI - Sonja was TINY. The dress looked like it would fit an 12 year-old girl.

This dress was also at the auction:
