About

Givenchy, the name itself evokes glamour, refined elegance, simplicity and style. Givenchy's trademark of sculpted lines and luxurious fabrics make his work easily recognizable. This gorgeous gown, dating back to late 1960's, is a beautiful example of his brilliance. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; black and white triple layered French dotted-tulle. I adore the elegant off-shoulder hourglass velvet bodice. The shimmering hand-beaded sequins create the perfect amount of drama to this timeless piece. The sash belted nipped-waist skirt with rings of ruching finishes this garment off with a perfect New Look vibe. As Givenchy said, "The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress."
