1990s Beaded Silk Ungaro Maxi Dress

A stunning and sexy silk dress by Emanuel Ungaro that dates to the early 90s. The dress has so many details that the closer you look at in the more you fall in love. The silk exterior is custom screened with a stunning print that combines baroque feeling swirls with flowers and color. The seaming allows it to skim the body and hug your curves and then it has a touch of fullness by the addition of soft pleats at the front. I love how the hem is cut scarf like at the bottom - so soft and romantic! The bust is all sex - a formed bra top is padded and shaped. The entire bodice has bead work and sequins worked into the design - quite heavily done in many areas and with an almost 3D feel. There is also finely done embroidery all through the top of the dress. Absolutely gorgeous and in excellent condition!
