About the dresses Dame Shirley is wearing for these performances:

Two stage gowns comprising: an off-the-shoulder gown of midnight blue organza, the bodice embroidered with silver thread and clear beads, the full layered skirt over layers of blue tulle, piped in silver lamé, labelled inside ‘Murray Arbeid London’.

And an asymmetrical fitted gown of black velvet, the front decorated diagonally from the left shoulder to the fishtail skirt and across the upper back with stylised lilies and leaves in white satin edged with tiny Swarovski clear crystals, white bugle beads and silver thread, labelled inside ‘Murray Arbeid London’.

The midnight blue dress was worn during a performance screened on London Weekend Television, circa 1986 and on the French TV.show  “Le Grand Echiquier”  in 1989.

The black velvet dress was worn when meeting H.M. The Queen after the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium, 23rd November, 1987 and at a performance screened on London Weekend Television circa 1986.
