Givenchy, the name itself evokes glamour, refined elegance, simplicity and style. Givenchy's trademark of sculpted lines and luxurious fabrics make his work easily recognizable. This gorgeous gown, dating back to his 1977 collection, is a beautiful example of his brilliance. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; luxurious black course silk linen with bold gold-hardware. I adore the pointy sculpted plunge corset strapless bodice. The hourglass curved waist with mermaid fishtail skirting creates the perfect amount of drama to this timeless beauty. As Givenchy said, "The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress."
