In 1949, Hedy Lamarr starred in the film Sampson and Delilah, and wore a drop dead gorgeous assiut ensemble designed by Oscar award winning costumer, Edith Head. This dress made a stir at the time for its opulence, drape, and revealing midriff.

The website All Posters has this image of Hedy wearing her assiut wearing her two piece ensemble features an asymmetrical cropped top that has a long dramatic drape that drops from her right shoulder to the floor.  Her floor length skirt is pulled up just enough to showcase her vintage shoes.

Best of all, it comes complete with her signature sassy style, glamorous pose, and take no prisoners glare!
