About

For over forty years Valentino has been one of the most prominent names in fashion, creating some of the world's most elegant and classic designs. It was Valentino's desire to design clothes that would celebrate the female form and accentuate a woman's sensuality. "I don't think any man in the world wants to go out with a woman dressed like a boy," he once said. This stunning black hourglass evening gown is a perfect example of his vision. The garment is fashioned from rich triple layered silk-chiffon and sunflower patterned couture lace. He then uses an ingenious nude illusion technique which gives the garment so much depth and texture. The bodice has the chicest ruffle bib-collar and lean, long button-wrist sleeves. The skirt nips in at the waist for an ultra flattering hourglass silhouette. He finishes this gorgeous garment off with a dramatic front-slit tiered hemline. Valentino has dressed some of the world's most glamorous people, including Princess Margaret, Julia Roberts and Claudia Schiffer. I totally see this rare couture show-stopper lighting up any event!
