Famous bare backs: Julie Christie in Shampoo in one of our favorite dresses ever and Kate Moss in a similar dress when she went to the Golden Globes with Johnny Depp in 1995. There is something extremely erotic about a dress that is covered and simple in the front until you turn around and then, unexpectedly, it plunges down, down. It is very, very sexy. It is also very unconventional.
From the 1970s is this Courreges Future Couture black velvet dress with a very simple front.
And a very exciting back! Black sequin embroidered straps lace across the bare back.
1970s Courreges Future Couture black velvet backless dress. Size 4.
