Party Like It Is 1977 For New Year's Eve 2012!

Loris Azzaro said that the ideal dress is one that a man wants to take off.  Natch!  Ladies, we may all say we dress for ourselves but secretly no one really wants to be a man repeller.  Okay!  I love harem pants - speaking of man repeller territory!  I bought Isabel Marant's tie waist pants in the fall which my husband hates and I, very Miss (or Mrs.) Independent,  will wear whatever-I damn-well-want, has gotten a little psyched out of wearing them : (  

So in 1977 when the hair was long, the lips were glossy and designers made dresses to be worn to be taken off as soon as possible, Loris Azzaro designed a buttercup yellow taffeta gown with a pleated bustier (and the interior has a built in bra and boning - so much less to take off later ; )  The waist is defined by a black velvet band.  This gown is very Sexy 70s Princess.  This is the original Sexy 70s Princess in a 1977 issue of French Vogue:

Here is the same gown - expertly restored by our neighborhood dry cleaners, The French Hand Laundry in Pasadena California.
