Fantastic Spring 1997 Versace Versus Black Iridescent 'Holographic' Dress as Seen on Fran Drescher

This is a fun find. The twin of this dress in a bright purple was won by Fran Drescher in an episode of the Nanny that aired in 1997. We have included that for you so that you can see how fabulous it is on the body. The black is even easier to wear I think and so versatile. It is a great little dress and I love the tie in with Fran's iconic character. 

This is a really fabulous little dress. It is made from a synthetic black fabric that has an unusual dot pattern running over its surface. What makes it unusual is that the dots are not sequins that have been applied to the dress instead they are a little tiny holographic dots that are fused directly onto the fabric. The dots catch the light from every angle but in a subtle way that I love. The dress has a very simple cut. The neckline drops in a little squared off scoop at the front and it is sleeveless. It is slightly more fitted over the bust and then from there the dress skims over you waist and hips with no horizontal seaming to break the line. The skirt falls under that and widens out as it nears the hem. We took a shot of the dress laying flat so you could see the shape better. It is a gorgeous little easy-to-wear dress and really showcases Versace's innovative eye and design genius. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition
