Recent Giambattista Valli Black Strapless Front Bow Cocktail Dress

This is a sexy and stunning dress by Giambattista Valli. The dress is classic Valli at his best. It is fitted and the inside is finished like a corset - this holds the almost micro mini firmly in place. The fabric is a heavy silk with an almost neoprene feel finish which allows it to really hold its shape. The skirt is a sharp little A-line that carries right up under the bust. The bodice makes a girl feel wrapped like a perfect little present with a bow set at the front. The inner construction is fabulous. A spectacular Valli and very sexy. Excellent condition

Has a full built in corset that is cupped and boned and closes with hook & eye. Fully lined in silk that is all hand set. It closes with a side hidden set zipper. It has some stretch so it really holds the wearer once on.
