If you are having an Audrey Hepburn (who wore Gattinoni) or a Grace Kelly moment, this is the perfect gown. It is from the 1960 collection where the great Italian couturiere, Fernanda Gattinoni, showed empire dresses. It is incredibly glamorous and incredibly beautiful.
The gown is magnificently embroidered. The over all embroidery is very subtle because of the light silver thread and the pale coral colors.
One of the most beautiful things about this dress - well, really, there are so many, but the back is as good as the front with its extravagant asymmetric swag. The dress is also designed like a flower with the the front continuing around to the back where it wraps around a column.
And we can't forget the diamanté embroidered straps!
