About

Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking black semi-sheer beaded silk-chiffon gown is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. Not only is this evening gown very alluring; it is so verstile and timeless. I adore sparkling scenic-garden beadwork bodice. Each sheer sleeve has a bit of volume that puffs up over each buttoned cuff; this is the balanced elegance Chanel is known for. The full-length hourglass nipped-waist skirt with peek-a-boo pleatwork finished this garment off with a perfect "femme fatale" silhouette. As Coco Chanel used to say, "Fashion fades, only style remains."
