2002 Christian Dior by John Galliano Striped Stretch Knit Low-Plunge Maxi Dress

About the Item

An ultra seductive and incredibly rare Christian Dior striped knit low-plunge maxi dress dating back to John Galliano's 2002 spring-summer collection. Vogue stated about the collection, "This was not the first time Dior has gone globetrotting, but Galliano injected, as always, new energy into his ethnic excursions. His bias-cut silk and lace dresses, embroidered jackets and sheer tops will work better than ever in this season of unbridled romanticism". This statement reads so true when one looks at this ultra-chic striped gown; one of the most flattering looks I've seen in a long time! John Galliano is widely considered one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the early twenty-first century. This garment showcases his mastery of contouring by combined both structure and fluidly in the same garment. The fabric on our Christian Dior maxi dress is sensational! He uses a luxurious fully ribbed stretch jersey knit in the most beautiful ivory, pinky nude and beige color combination. I truly love the low cut front plunge with criss-cross backside and attached sash belt. The supermodel length skirting has beautiful movement but also molds to the body effortlessly when standing still. This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This maxi dress can be styled for the fanciest of events like a wedding or red carpet or dress is down for a more relaxed resort look. You will reach for this Dior anytime you want to look sensational. Measurements Marked a EU 40 (varies a bit due to stretch) Bust: 33-36 inches Waist: 24-27 inches Hips: 36-39 inches Total Length: 63 inches This 2002 Christian Dior by John Galliano knit gown is in beautiful condition with no rips, holes or alternations. Closes with hidden side zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.

  • Iconic 1992 Gianni Versace Couture Documented Black Bondage Silk Leather Gown
    By Gianni Versace
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    An exceptional, museum quality Gianni Versace black leather, silk & lace heavily sculpted bondage gown dating back to his iconic 1992 fall-winter runway collection. This iconic collection, provocatively titled 'Miss S&M' definitely goes down in history as one of Gianni Versace's most recognizable looks. Versace’s fantasies came to life, fetishistic elements were worked into glamorous eveningwear, and with no small effort: Vogue said, “Getting strapped required eight hands. These high-maintenance looks were meant to be seen, not in a dungeon somewhere, but on the red carpet." As shown, this particular show-stopper of a gown, Look #62, has been worn by the likes of Christy Turlington, Tyra Banks...

  • Iconic 1996 Madonna 'Evita' Film-Worn Beaded Ivory Silk Couture Archival Gown
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Own a major slice of celebrity and film history. Madonna wore this extraordinary ivory beaded couture gown for her portrayal of Eva Perón in the unforgettable 1996 film "Evita". Madonna campaigned to play the role of Evita and used her popstar status to acquire it. Many other actresses were considered to play the role such as Elaine Paige, Liza Minnelli, Cher and Meryl Streep. The film was a huge success for Madonna, who up until this time had not fared well in her acting exploits. Madonna even won a Best Actress Golden Globe Award for her performance as the First Lady of Argentina. Madonna wears this gorgeous gown in the scenes at the Inaugural Ball as she dances and movingly sings the song, "High Flying, Adored." The fabric itself is a masterpiece; high quality silk satin that has been heavily adorned with hand set red jewels, pearls, rhinestones and glass beads. I love the chic cut-out neckline which rests on the collarbone and scoops low in the back. The gown flows into an hourglass nipped waist where it breaks into a unique zig-zag design. The piece work to create the skirting in particular is extraordinary. The yard and yards of luxurious silk satin personify the feminine ideal in clothing. We photographed the garment with and without a petticoat so you can see the true fullness. Not only was this gown an iconic look for the character but Madonna was also featured in the October 1996 issue of Vogue magazine wearing this gown. The gown was originally made for the actress Carol Lawrence and then worn by actress Daryl Hannah while accompanying John F. Kennedy, Jr. to meet the Queen of England. We were thrilled to find a picture of this meeting as well. With Madonna worn garments fetching extremely high prices at auction (her 'Desperately Seeking Susan...
