The Film Noir Dress from Deadly Dames is inspired by silhouettes from the silent film era vamps and mid-century bombshells. This dress is made up of lush stretch velvet that is draped across the bustline and shirred along the side to create a slinky, sultry shape. Don't be shocked when you turn heads in this dress! If you are between sizes we suggest that you order down if you desire a more snug fit like in the photos. We also suggest wearing like colored undergarments with this dress.
