1990s Ruffled Silk Chiffon Oscar De La Renta Gown

An absolutely stunning and sexy red ruffled silk chiffon dress by Oscar De La Renta. It is so fresh and modern in feel that it could be easily mistaken as a piece from a current runway collection. It is masterfully cut on the bias so it simply drapes into place to skim over the body and move subtly as you do. The color is absolutely fantastic - the perfect clear red that flatters most skin tones - I think it is even better in person then how it has photoed! A triple layered column of the finest grade silk chiffon floats over the body and cascades to the floor. The bodice is strapless and hand gathered into tiny soft pleats that hide a full interior foundation garment. At the back you have a cascade of romantic ruffles that trail down the mid back to the hem. This adds to the illusion of height and leanness and also gives it a romantic and feminine feel. Very Grecian goddess and very sexy. The matching silk chiffon shawl is quite large so can be styled several ways. It is gorgeous! Excellent, appears unworn, condition

Fully lined in two more layers of red silk chiffon with a full built in corset through the bodice that is boned and has padded interior cups. It closes with a hidden set back zipper and the interior corset has its own zipper and hooked waist stay. Hand finishes. The scarf is in a matching silk chiffon and in excellent condition.
