1985 Chanel Silk & Jersey Corset Dress worn by Emily Ratajkowski


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. A version with straps was also photoed on Johanna Pacula for Vogue in the August 1985 issue. 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 Bust: approx 15-16" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 12" flat across from side seam to side seam Upper hips where silk bodice ends: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam Natural hips: to 18" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 14" from tips of bodice to end of silk corset Skirt: 36" from bottom of of silk corset to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML Reference Photos: Emily Ratajkowski wearing this dress to Rihanna's 2017 Diamond Ball. / Joanna Pacula, in ‘Chanel: The Style & Spirit’, for Vogue, August 1985.
