Stunning 2010s Valentino Supermodel Long Red Silk Crepe Dress w Illusion Lace Bodice
This is a stunning Valentino that is from the time period of Valentino when it was being co-designed by both Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli. They had stepped into Mr Valentino's shoes and were breathing new life into the brand. I love that they still adhered to the label's heritage in keeping with using the classic Valentino red colour. This is just a lovely lovely dress.
The main body of the dress is made from a light stretch silk crepe in the signature shade of red that Valentino is so well known for. The fabric choice keeps the dress light in weight while still holding that beautiful shape that you see. The bodice is made from a matching red lace that has panels of the crepe draped over it to keep you from being completely bare. It is cut with little capped sleeves and a high scooped neckline. It skims over the bodice and then the panels are draped and tacked over the front to cover the breasts. Another panel goes across the back and then both the front and the back panels extend out into long ties. These tie at one side of the waist. This adds a beautiful detailing and also adds shape through the waist and allows you to adjust the fit. The skirt falls to the floor in a graceful column and gradually widens out just a touch as it nears the hem. Under the tie at the side the skirt is slit quite high and is edged in a double layer of ruffles. This creates a beautiful movement down that side and an added bit of prettiness. The lightness of the silk combined with the opening on the one side allows the fabric of the skirt to move with the slightest bit of movement on your part and it is so pretty when you walk. The skirt is cut very long and is in its original length. It is a beautiful and romantic dress. It looks to have been worn very little it at all. Excellent condition
The bodice is lined a nude organza and the skirt is made from two layers of the red stretch silk. It closes with a side hidden set zipper. The fabric does have a slight stretch. Tagged a modern size 8
