1970s Sexy Valentino Silk Dot Backless Gown

This dress is so much better in person and on a real body I wish you could see it in real life! It is made of a fluid scarf weight silk through the body with an overlay of silk chiffon on the bodice and a panel of silk chiffon that runs down the front The dress wraps into place and has an interesting snap and loop design at the front that the ends of the silk chiffon overlay loop through and under to create that pretty bow detail at the front. The  skirt has a faux wrap effect that is partially hidden under that draping of silk down the front. However when you move or sit you will get miles of leg showing - so sexy! The top hooks behind the neck and the back is left bare! It has a very Grecian Goddess meets studio 54 feel that I love. You cannot help but feel amazing in this dress. Excellent condition!

Fully lined in a high quality silk in a matching color. Hooks to close behind the neck and has a painted zipper at the low back. Inner waist stay that hooks to close and light boning down the sides of the bust. Hand finished throughout with excellent construction.
