Spring 2004 Oscar de la Renta Fern Print Floral Detailed Yellow Silk Chiffon Ruffled Dress
The twin of this dress was showcased in a special presentation for the InStyle & "A Diamond is Forever" Sneak Peek at Red Carpet Fashion for the 2004 Awards Season. I have included photos from that so that you can see just how gorgeous this dress is once on. This is definitely one of the prettiest Oscar dresses I have ever had in the shop
The dress is a dream. It is made out of a yellow printed silk chiffon that has a soft green fern print scattered across its surface. It has a soft rounded shape to the upper bodice and the silk is draped over the torso to fall down and around you in gentle draping that goes from the top of the bust to just below the hips. I love how it is scooped up at the middle and the skirt is set in and under the draped bodice. The skirt has a ton of volume to it that shows best when you move. It has four full sets of ruffled tiers that fall softly to the floor. The lightness of the silk causes the ruffles on the skirt to move with the slightest bit of air. When this is on and you are walking the effect that this creates is absolutely gorgeous. It is held in place by the straps that come up and out of the front bodice and wrap around and hook behind the beck. This is made out of the same silk as the dress. This strip of detailing is gathered in a ruffle and the edges are left raw. Then, set along the entire length of the ruffle are little hand made flowers. This extra little detail is fabulous and adds an extra element of romance and femininity. This is Oscar at his best and a tremendously beautiful dress. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition.
The bodice and torso are lined in a matching deep yellow silk. The ruffles of the skirt are set on top of the same silk chiffon so you get a touch of transparency as they move. It closes with an inner zipper to close the built in boned inner support and then a second hidden set zipper over that to close the exterior dress. The straps hook to close behind the neck. Lightly boned through the inner bodice. Inner waist stay hooks to close. Hand finishes through out
