Oscar De La Renta Black & White Evening Gown

Truman Capote first hosted his legendary "Black & White Ball" on November 28, 1966 in honor of Washington Post publisher, Katherine Graham. The gala was held in the Grand Ballroom of New York City's famed Plaza Hotel. It was considered from that season forward, one of, if not the social events of the year. Nicknamed, the "Versailles of the Sixties", the first Black & White ball boasted an impressive and eclectic guest list including Tallulah Bankhead, Lauren Bacall, and Capote's own elevator operator. Partygoers allegedly heard Norman Mailer rant about Vietnam, spotted Candace Bergen yawning, and spied Mr. Frank Sinatra dancing with his new bride, Mia Farrow. In honor of the Black & White Ball, we picked an Oscar De La Renta gown fit for the fete. Crafted in black and white striped grosgrain ribbon, this dazzling dress feautres black and white beading and black tipped white feather trim on each of the stripes on the skirt. In a perfect size 6 and in next-to-new condition! Priced at $3000. For further information or to purchase, please contact:
