About

This is just classic, covetable Versace Versus dress! It is an insane and instantly recognizable controlled chaos of color done on a plush cotton velvet. The velvet allows the colors to be as crisp and bright as you would wish them to be and the cut is all nineties sex. A zipped front with a glamours gold, large zipper pull can be done up to the high neck, or left as low as you dare. The dress is cut with curves and the fabric allows it to instantly mold to your body and become a second skin. Long sleeves have their fabric perfectly placed to work with the design and pattern of the body of the dress. It is everything wonderful about Gianni's work. Excellent, appears to be unworn condition
