Versace Sheer Paneled Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is an absolutely stunning gown by Versace. Cut in a 1930s-esque flared column silhouette, it draws on all the elegance and sophisticated sexiness of the inter-war period. Made in a combination of black satin and sheer black voile, the complex geometric lines and insets in this dress mimic the seams so popular in the 1930s, but with a modern moto twist: the seams flatter the lines of the body to amazing effect, and bring to mind the seams on motorcycle suits. The urban warrior chic is blended perfectly with timeless elegance and romance in this gown, and the incredible sheer panels add just the right degree of classy and tasteful sexiness. The hint of a train at the back of the skirt, which flares slightly below the hips, adds a note of majesty to complete the incredible piece. This is a truly inspired design, and will give you commmand of any room you enter. Gorgeously constructed as well as designed, this gown will make you feel the stylish seductress of the evening. Nearly demure in cut it is balanced with silk chiffon panels which jet up, down and around the body to reveal in all the right places. The satin panels are lined right to the edges of the chiffon thus leaving no bumps or curves other than your own to be revealed. Thoroughly contemporary this gown will not disappoint.
