About

This lovely little dress is closest in feel to the pink one used for the fall ad campaign for the Rive Gauche label that year. I love the pink version as well but think that the all black is perhaps even more wearable for a larger variety of occasions and the velvet gives it a more luxe evening feel. The dress is lovely with its strapless, curved bodice and fitted silhouette. The main fabric that makes up the body of the dress is a rich, lush black velvet that gives it depth and texture. This is then mixed with black silk organza ruffles that detail the dress. I absolutely love the ruffle detailing that finishes the edges and the contrast of the two fabrics. This is a classic YSL touch and gives it a flirty, girlie feel that it would not have without that finish. The ruffles edge the curving neckline, curve around to highlight the bust area, and then go all the way around the back. At the hem he has used three full layers of the ruffle set almost on top of each other so that you get a little explosion of volume there. Everything about the cut of the dress is done to highlight the curves of the body from the way the ruffles are set on the velvet to the fitted and curved lines of the body of the dress. It is wonderful. Excellent condition Fully lined in a black cotton fabric and the interior bodice is lightly boned for shape and support. Inner waist stay that hooks to close and the back closes with a fine metal zipper.
