Linda Evengelista was photoed in a version of this dress from Vogue Germany in 1994 which gives us a date on this dress. It has the same shoulder treatment and very similar cut. It is hard to tell from how she is holding the dress but I think ours may have a touch more flare through the skirt. Versace pieces can be so sexy and chic and yet still have a refined air about them and this little black dress is a perfect example of that. It is cut to skim over the body without being overtly tight but does show off your curves. The body of the dress is made of a a lightweight black wool. The hem is finished with a swinging panel of knife pleated silk chiffon so when you move it floats and moves around you. I love the unusual cut of the shoulders that gives it a very sculptural feel. Excellent condition. Fully lined in a black silky rayon. It has a full built in finished corset and both it and the exterior dress close with hidden set side zippers. The inner corset is boned.
