Cinema Wedding Gowns: Penelope (1966)

Today's gown is one of those unique gowns that could only come out of the swinging sixties and Natalie Wood is the one who wears it.

Designed by Edith Head, the dress features a strapless sheath covered with a shift dress made of sheer, decorative, windowpane fabric. The front of the dress falls to the knee with the shift extending in the back to a small train. The gown also features a square neck and three-quarter length sleeves.

The veil is a typical 1960s style with a small dome-shaped head piece covered with flowers. The short attached tulle veil also has flowers sprinkled over it.

The film is in color and this lobby card shows the detail of the fabric.
