2010 Rafael Cennamo Couture Black Beaded Lace-Illusion Gothic Trained Gown

About

Breathtaking Rafael Cennamo black illusion gown from his 2010 couture collection which retailed for over $8,000. Recognized for his creativity, Rafael Cennamo uses luxurious fabrics and edgy structures to bring a new twist to high fashion. As a young designer, Rafael Cennamo has captured the attention of many prominent celebrities including Anne Hathaway, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Rihanna. This dramatic black Chantilly-lace gown is a wonderful example of his genius. The fabrics alone is a masterpiece; hand beaded French floral-patterned lace mixed with soft semi-sheer net tulle. The bodice is a seductive low-cut plunge illusion bustier corset construction with unique applique work. I adore the chic high-neck and lean, long sleeves. The skirting has the most irresistible middle-slit which flows into a gorgeous trained backside. I totally see this show-stopper gliding down the red carpet! Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Waist:30 inches Hips:up to 42 inches Sleeve Length:26 inches Total Length (not including train):60 inches
