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 beautiful metallic-bronze gown is a perfect example of his vision. The dress is fashioned from lined sequin silk-tulle. The bodice is a low-cut plunge sculpted halter. I love the seductive backless! The skirt is a nipped-waist hourglass silhouette with an amazing starburst detailed hemline. Valentino has dressed some of the world's most glamorous people, including Princess Margaret, Julia Roberts and Claudia Schiffer.The original cost of this dress was over $12,000 back in the early 1990's and it has never been worn with store tags. I totally see this gown gliding down the red carpet.
