1990s Versace Couture Cut Out Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is the most dramatic and sexy gown ever! It is quintessential Versace with a slinky silk jersey fabric that drapes into place perfectly. The front has a dramatic curved cut out between the folds of jersey that covers the bust. This drapes down to the sode and is caught up in a strip of jersey that is actually part of the straps. The jersey then wraps around the back and creates another low hip cut out. The back is left completely bare as low as Versace dared to go! The skirt is panels of that insanely fabulous silk jersey and is supermodel length. The front and the back have scandalously high slits that expose the leg right to the upper thigh if you move a certain way. Its screened with a customs print of beautiful flowers that are places to highlight the cut of the gown and add to the length created by the drape. Superb! Excellent, appears not to have been worn condition.

Unlined with an inner mesh body suit that closes with hooks and is in immaculate condition. This helps to hold the dress exactly into place so you have no fear of slips. Hand finishes inside and slips on.
