Resort 2012 Runway Chanel Silk Cream Dress

On the runway this was paired with amazing open toed kid leather boots giving it a head to toe silhouette of cream. You will also note that on the runway it was shown long but it works equally well styled with the skirt sitting higher on the hip letting the fabric create a second soft fold to mimic the blousey effect of the bodice. It is a stunning dress made entirely of a luxurious silk and cut masterfully as one would expect form Chanel. It has never been worn and is the exact duplicate of the runway piece you see. The sleeves are especially lovely - they are cut very full and ballon above the elastic that sits at the elbow. I also love the back with its draped detail effect and keyhole that runs down the outermost layer. It is very well made and the seaming details just scream chanel and high end. A rare runway piece from a master. Excellent, appears unworn condition. said of this collection:

"Billion-dollar babes." Karl-ette Caroline Sieber nailed the essence of the Cruise collection that Lagerfeld showed for Chanel tonight. The venue—the Hotel du Cap, in Antibes on the French Riviera—is, as the designer himself pointed out, possibly the most expensive hotel in the world, and he booked out the whole joint a year ago for however many days it took to get this show on the runway. Plus, he'd flown in a cast of top models and glamorous front-row horseflesh. Plus plus, he accessorized his looks with real jewels, diamonds, and pearls, like the comet of sparklers that traced the armhole on Karolina Kurkova's top. "Too much may not be enough," Lagerfeld mused at show's end.
