I love this dress. It's actually housed at the Phoenix Musuem of Art. It's even more beautiful in person.

This is a Charles James 4 leaf clover ball gown. It was inspired by the cage crinoline era with two separate understructures of boning. Skirts weighed about 15 lbs, but sits comfortably on the hips. It was not completed in time for Austine Hearst to wear to the Eisenhower Inaugural Ball in 1953.
