“Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.”
–Mary Pickford, circa 1925

She’s the queen of the silent era.

When the talkies finally arrive, she moves on to launching United Artists with a couple close friends.

She’s the first to reside permanently in Grauman’s cement.

When did the red carpet become a fashion show?

1929, led boldly by her.

I didn’t design this dress for blending in or submission to generalities of the beautiful female body. It shows the curves in the right places. This is for the woman who is not afraid of the limelight (and the applause of course).

With the cummerbund and polka dots, it’s also unique. I imagine she would’ve worn this dress (and revolutionized fashion as well).

Cummerbund Dress (No. 3754). Soft polyester jersey cloth with tricot lining. Crossover v-neckline. Pleating at bust. Ruched waistband. Shirring along wearer’s left waist. Three-quarter length kimono sleeves. Mid-calf length. Imported.

Women’s sizes: 0 through 20.

Lovely style but sized a little small
Lovely design but narrow at the bottom of the ribcage and waist (the cummerbund). I ended up getting it in a size 10 when I usually wear a 6 or 8. In my experience, the tailored fit J. Peterman clothes run small for the labeled size. This is a great vintage look that works beautifully with black pumps.

Lord, how disappointing was this purchase! I read everyone's reviews and just KNEW this was going to be a great dress for me. I'm 5'11 and 150 pounds, a size 10 but always critical of myself. This dress made me look like my grandmother....on a bad day. Sexy was the last thing it was channeling. It was in the retun mail within minutes. I hope you are luckier.

Classy yet Fun
I love polka dots - all kinds. Everybody knows that, yet instead of looking at me in this dress and likely thinking ho-hum, they say OH, where did you find such a great dress?

Absolutely Gorgeous
I hesitated on buying this dress as I don't usually buy clothing with polyester. I am so glad I went ahead and ordered it. This dress is a beauty. The fabric is luscious, but it is the way the dress fits that is so wonderful. You just feel beautiful in it. The polka dots are also fun. I can't wait for winter so that I can wear it.
