Dreamiest Spring 2008 Valentino Ivory Silk Organza Strapless Wedding Dress w Beaded Lace & Ruffle Skirt

This stunning Valentino wedding dress is new with tags and was never worn. It is beautifully made. The wedding collections are not as well documented as the regular collections so dating them is a little trickier but we were able to find a clip from the Spring 2008 Valentino Sposa runway so you can see just how beautifully it moves once on the body. this is an absolutely stunning dress. It is in perfect condition and is a beyond gorgeous for the a bride looking to make a chic and elegant statement.

This is a stunning dress. It is strapless with a beaded bodice and flounced ruffled skirt. A band of silk organza is wrapped around the upper bodice and then another band of that same silk circles the waist. Between these is a layer of silk lace netting that has an elaborate floral design highlighted with beadwork. The flowers within the design of the lace have been beaded with tiny little seed beads to follow the design of the lace. A peplum of the same beaded netting extends out from under the organza at the waist and this layer is finished with a curved edge that is just beautiful. Underneath that the bodice is lined in the same silk organza and it is meant to be fitted to you for shape. A soft inner corset holds the dress in place and the waist nips in. From there the skirt falls to the floor. The skirt is a work of art. It is done in multiple layers of ruffled silk organza with the bands of silk gradually getting wider and fuller as they near the floor. I have not added any additional underskirts. All the volume that you see is from the built in underskirts that the gown had. I love it the way it is but you could add an underskirt if you wanted even more volume. The way this moves around you is magical. The silk is feather light and it is just stunning to see in person. The very last ruffle of the skirt is done in the same lace as the bodice but without the beading and I love how this times the elements together. Underneath the skirt is a second silk organza layer and then there are three layers of tulle and a silk inner skirt against your skin. The back has a sweeping train that extends out past the hem and there is extra fullness at the back. It is stunning and so romantic feeling. It was never worn and still has all its original tags. Excellent condition

Fully lined an ivory silk with a soft ivory silk inner bodice and boning along the sides. The inner bodice closes with a side zipper and then the exterior dress zips to close over that with a hidden set zipper. The skirts are lined as described above. It has its original hang tag.
