Dale Arden's (Melody Anderson) white dress from Mike Hodges' sci-fi adventure Flash Gordon. After being transported to planet Mongo, Earthling Arden was given a white dress to wear while imprisoned in the bedchamber of Emperor Ming the Merciless (Max Von Sydow).
This white silk, V-neck ankle-length dress features beaded details along the open seams, including one on the front which trails to a decorative bead and jewel-affixed broach cluster on the waist. The sleeves feature button-up openings on the forearms and gauntlet-like decorative white and gold-color bead elements on the wrists. This dress exhibits minor wear from age and production throughout, but remains in excellent overall condition.
