Jean Carol was acclaimed mid-century designer Peggy Hunt's first label, under which she designed dresses for stars like Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis, Mary Pickford, Lucille Ball, Bette Davis, and Lana Turner. Hunt is credited with inventing the "illusion neckline.” This dress has a particularly unique strappy neckline. I’m not sure it’s original, but I absolutely love it.
