About

This striking Oscar de la Renta gown is made of a vivid red taffeta which flashes a bit when moving. The style is reminiscent of 19th century dresses with the fitted bodice and sleeves, the row of buttons down the front, and the ribbon tie accents. The ruffled cuffs are quite full, with a slender velvet edge. The skirt has a long, gathered lower tier that is trimmed with velvet ribbon that matches the ties. The hem has an embedded wire to give it shape and help it stand out.

shoulder to shoulder is 14.5"
underarm to underarm is 18"
across waist is 12"
