This dress was worn by the character "Louella Parson," portrayed by actress Elizabeth Taylor, in the 1985 television movie, "Malice in Wonderland." The beige 2 pc. crepe gown has polka dot netting and beading along the bodice. The overlay and neckline were added later to restore the vintage dress due to wear from age.
Ms. Taylor can be seen wearing this dress during the Christmas party scene. "Malice in Wonderland," based on the 1972 novel, "Hedda and Louella: A Dual Biography of Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons," by George Eells, stars Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Alexander. It tells the based-on-real-life stories of powerful Hollywood gossip columnists Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons, once friends and later rivals. It was nominated for four Emmy Awards, including one for Outstanding Costume Design for a Limited Series or a Special.
The dress is in vintage screen worn condition with evidence of wear due to age. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the costume house.
