Oscar de la Renta Black Velvet Gown with Gold Netting

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Drop dead gorgeous! This gown is dramatic in a way you just don't see anymore. The sweeping floor length column of black velvet is sumptuous and rich, coming to an angular point at the sternum to contrast the long folds of the skirt. Trimmed with a densely beaded gold collar and cuffs, the sleeves and shoulders of the dress are formed by open gold metallic netting with occasional rhinestones punctuating the material. This gown is the epitome of glamorous, vintage Oscar de la Renta.
Please note, this piece is sold as is due to some loosening threads in the gold netting. Also, the back features a full zip from waist to collar - unfortunately the mannequin is too large to demonstrate this.
