About

This dress is the actual one lent to and worn by Emily Ratajkowski to Rihanna's 2017 Diamond Ball in New York. It is now back and available for some girl to have her own supermodel moment in.

If you have been looking for the perfect little black dress that has that perfect mix of sexy and chic, this late eighties Chanel dress is perfect. It is cut to be fitted and to follow your every curve but without being so tight that it is unflattering. If anything the way it is cut and the fabric choices hide flaws and give you curves whether you have them or not. The skirt is made of a thicker stretch jersey with an inner fine, silk lining. It hugs the hips and falls to the floor in a narrow sheath with a slit up the back to allow you to be able to walk. The fabric is reminiscent of a bandage dress so really hugs and conceals. The bodice acts like a corset with inner boning and structure to cinch you in at the waist and hold you up through the bust. The top is completely covered with silk chiffon placed in perfect hand done and stitched flat pleats that run horizontally over the corset. The edge of the top is peaked dramatically and then plunges into a deep V. Down the front runs a row of tightly spaced gold Chanel logo buttons. Excellent condition.

Fully lined through the bodice in silk crepe. The jersey skirt is unlined. The bodice is boned and has a stay that hooks to close under the actual bust and a second hooked stay lower down at the waist. Twelve Chanel logo embossed gold gilt metal buttons run down the front. Hidden pockets along the inner, inset, front seams. Tagged a Chanel 36 with size 4 hand written on the tag
