VICTOR COSTA STRAPLESS DRESS WITH BUSTLE

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A definite statement piece! You will not go unnoticed in this dramatic Victor Costa strapless dress of white satin and black velvet stripes. From the front, it looks simple and beautiful enough, but turn slightly and you are in for a surprise. In back, the skirt is raised by a full black net bustle, creating a striking silhouette and revealing a bit of the straight sheath below.



Graphically and otherwise, one of the best Victor Costas we have seen. Back zipper, hooks and eyes at bustle.
