Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Yves Saint Laurent has designed a very glamorous and sexy evening dress in black silk velvet. The figure hugging dress appears to barely touch the shoulders, it has a fabulous neckline for jewelry. There are black peau de soie bows on either side. The dress hugs the body, displaying every curve. At the knees the dress flares out in a full trained mermaid skirt. It has long narrow sleeves with zippers at the wrist. The dress is supported underneath by a fully boned corset which zips up the center back. The dress has another zipper which zips up the center back as well. It is fully lined in black silk and the skirt is lined in black satin. It is in pristine condition and appears unworn.
