Spring 2006 Roberto Cavalli White Cotton Plunging Mini Dress
This Roberto Cavalli dress is from the Spring 2006 collection and is very sexy. It's twin walked the runway that season and was worn by Carmen Kass. I have included that reference photo here so you can see how amazing it is once on the body.
It is an easy to wear piece and very flattering once on the body. It is very short and I think you could easily wear it as a tunic as well if you are not brave enough to go that short for a dress. The crispness of the white cotton and that deep front and back plunge pack a lot of punch into the design. The lines are simple and despite its overt sexiness it is surprisingly comfortable to wear. There are long, long ties that go through the dress under the bust and these can be loosened or tightened as needed. I have tied them into bows so they are like how it was shown on the runway but you could also leave them looser and hanging. There is a wide band of elastic at the hips that stretches for the perfect fit. Each sleeve is very full and cut very long with two bands of elastic. One just above the elbow and one above the huge double layered bell cuffs. This allows you to push them up or down to get the most volume through the sleeve and adjust the length. It is fabulous. Excellent condition.
Unlined and slips over the head to wear with ties at the waist to adjust the fit. Tagged a 40. Appears to have been worn very little if at all.
