Vintage 1979 Valentino Green Roses Floral Draped Silk Criss-Cross Halter Gown



Breathtaking runway Valentino vintage gown which reads so modern. For over forty years Valentino has been one of the most prominent names in fashion, creating some of the world's most elegant and classic designs. It was Valentino's desire to design clothes that would celebrate the female form and accentuate a woman's sensuality. "I don't think any man in the world wants to go out with a woman dressed like a boy," he once said. This stunning rose garden floral print gown is a perfect example of his vision. The dress is fashioned from double layered screened silk that has been hand-draped into tiny soft pleats so the entire bodice is gathered. Little ruched stitches run in vertical rows; giving the garment so much depth and texture. I adore the emerald-green and black large-scale print with hints of lime peaking through. The criss-cross halter flows into a dramatic curved backless design with middle drape. The skirt nips in at the waist for an ultra flattering hourglass silhouette. Just look at that gorgeous fishtail construction! Valentino has dressed some of the world's most glamorous people, including Princess Margaret, Julia Roberts and Claudia Schiffer. I totally see this rare show-stopper lighting up any modern event. Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:36 inches Total Length:57 inches This Valentino designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working side zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
