1978 Red Halston One Shoulder Jersey Dress As Seen on Kate Moss

This is perhaps the most iconic of all of the Halston silhouettes and in 2016 it entered modern day fashion history when Kate Moss wore the twin of this exact dress on the red carpet at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Halston was a master at this cut. There is a certain sexiness caused by the illusion of having the entire dress suspended by one hook at the shoulder. It gives the sense that undoing that hook would cause the entire dress to drop in a puddle around you (which it would). It is made with an inner dress cut from the same synthetic jersey that skims over the body in a long sheath and has a slit traveling up on side of the leg opposite to the draped side. Over this inner sheath lies a draped panel of jersey suspended from the shoulder that falls down both the front and back. This top layer hooks into place and then cascades loosely down and over the inner layer for the ultimate Grecian goddess feel. This is a classic and now even more iconic piece that is perfect for traveling as they are wash and wear and travel exceedingly well. Easy to style too - a quick change of shoe takes it day to night in a snap. Museum quality and really an exquisite gown. Excellent condition.

Slips on and has a hook at the top of the shoulder. These will fit a variety of sizes since they are not cut to be super fitted. Tagged a SML. The fabric has stretch
