Working as a dancer, singer, and general entertainer throughout the Chicago cabaret circuit, Tessa Delisle became the favorite of every Prohibition-dodging gangster in the city. Her dazzling and daring dress and headband set off her delicate features, leading her to become known in mob circles as just “The Ivory Lady”. Her unique ensemble combines the sultriness of the cabaret singer with the whimsy of the speakeasy, featuring a plunging neckline with a lace-over-nude satin inset and wide shoulder straps. The satin dress is trimmed with sequins, and includes a belted drop waist and double zig-zag fringed hemline.
