When Less is More

Angelina Jolie could have been naked the night of the Academy Awards and do you think anyone would have noticed? No, absolutely not. Of course we all know why. Those emerald earrings. Just a simple girl with some simple earrings.

This early 1990s Lanvin dress in a deep marine blue is ready to be complimented by your amazing Physique 57 body (which, by the way ladies, is conveniently in the same building as RARE vintage here on 57th street) or a great big something sparkly real or faux. And if you can get your hands on those emeralds...

The details of the dress are subtle but extraordinary. The cutting is sculptural and the dress drapes beautifully on the body. We love the deeply cut back and the wide straps that cross over bare skin. When everyone else is bedecked, bejewled and bedazzed, sometimes the dress that can be most dramatic and sensuous, is the simplest one in the room.

Early 1990s Lanvin deep marine blue crepe dress. Size 6.
