Pre-Fall 2008 Stella McCartney Silk Chiffon One Shoulder Dress
The bias cut combined with silk chiffon layers are what give this dress its Greek Goddess feel. Stella McCartney makes exquisite evening pieces and I love this one from the pre-fall 2008 collection. Pre-fall and pre-spring collections are always produced in smaller numbers and harder to acquire. This dress was a favorite on the red carpet in the 2008 season and was seen on both Scarlett Johansson and Poppy Montgomery. The dress is made of a green silk chiffon in a soft hue. It is cut on the bias with a second layer in a matching silk acting as its lining. The fabric choice allow it to drape beautifully on the body. It is long and sleek while you stand but once you move you get a wonderful fullness in the skirt. The way it is cut is very couture in feel and it has a definitive Madame Gres reference feel to it. The entire dress is suspended from the tie at the shoulder. I love the pleating through the bodice that extends down into the waist and then softly opens into the skirt. Excellent condition.
The skirt is fully lined in a second layer of matching colored silk chiffon that is also bias cut. The bodice is lined a a matching silk. It closes with a hidden side zipper and ties at the top of the one shoulder. It is tagged a modern 40 but McCartney pieces fit small so you should know your sizing in this label or make sure to check the measurements below
