The dress has a natural slightly gathered waistline (fixed at the seam) and comes with a slim belt in matching fabric and lined in white smooth leather (signed "YVES SAINT LAURENT MADE IN FRANCE" and numbered 463). The bodice is unlined but consists of two layers of fabric that are fastened in the back with a very fine hand set hidden painted metal and nylon zipper each – the outer layer closes with an additional faux pearl button at the neck. The dress has silk covered shoulder pads with bra strap fastenings and two hidden side pockets. The skirt is lined in a matching light blue silk charmeuse whereas the sleeves in matching silk chiffon. This gown is finished to Haute Couture standards and entirely done by hand. The label reads "YVES SAINT LAURENT PARIS MADE IN FRANCE" and is numbered 072859. Excellent vintage condition. One hardly visible yellowish small spot at the front just above the belt that may come out with additional cleaning (see picture 4). Only visible under close inspection.
