Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2003 Runway Ad Campaign Red Mini Dress Ruched Arm Bands

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Red, baring and slinky, this Dolce & Gabbana minidress is designed to command attention. When it debuted in the spring/summer 2003 runway show on supermodel Gisele Bündchen, it led Vogue’s Sarah Mower to write, “power-womanhood is not extinct on planet Fashion.” And when Steven Meisel focused his lens on it for the season’s ad campaign, it became iconic—and highly collectible. Cut from a luxurious stretch viscose jersey, this LRD is crafted to drape beautifully on the body and accentuate its every move. Rather than hug every curve, it has an easy blouson top (that is even more full at the back) to leave more to the imagination and to balance the revealing deep V at its sides and the short skirt. Coordinating spaghetti straps and drawstrings funneled through a middle panel of the dress allow the wear to customize the fit and length. Wear the piece without or with the stunning ruched arm bands whose drawstrings can tie seductively about the wrists and arms.

Measurements
This is photographed on a size small mannequin. With all of the ruching and draping, the below measurements are the best estimates.
Size: 44, but the cut is small
Bust: Up to 36 inches
Waist: 30 inches
Hips: 38 inches
Length: 38 inches

This Dolce & Gabbana minidress from the spring/summer 2003 collection is in excellent condition. It is made from luxurious red stretch viscose jersey. It features adjustable drawstring straps, a blouson top that is cut slimmer in the front and fuller in the back, low-cut sides, an adjustable drawstring middle panel and a short skirt. The dress is unlined. It comes with ruched arm bands that also loosen or tighten with drawstrings. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
