Instagram to Win a Vintage Bob Mackie Dress

Hang on to your hot sauce ladies, the Sultan of Sequins, Bob Mackie, is giving away a gorgeous vintage gown. Want to own and be draped in a stunning floor length, cream colored gown from the same man who dressed Cher, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, etc?  Yes you can own a piece of Bob’s designs from his first collection in 1982. The dress may look simple in silhouette, with its sweetheart neckline and ruched waist, but you can’t miss the dynamic and exquisite detail. The chic classic, an approximate modern size 2-4 (32″-35″ bust – 24″-27″ waist – hips up to 48″) features Bob Mackie’s trademark hand-sewn sequined flower cap sleeves.

To make this amazing once in a lifetime event happen, Bob Mackie is teaming up with vintage style expert and blogger, Sammy Davis of Sammy Davis Vintage (photographed looking sensational in the dress) who shares more about the giveaway in the video below:
