Gorgeous Bill Blass red silk-crepe beaded trompe l'oeil sash dress dating back to his 1979 collection. Building upon the innovations of European designers such as Coco Chanel, Blass made clothes that allowed women a modern sense of ease. He made glamorous garments that possessed a new American casual chic sensibility, which he achieved by merging simple styles with luxurious materials. This breathtaking cocktail has everything a woman wants. The scoopneck blousy bodice, with back covered buttons, has an alluring asymmetric Grecian drape design. I love the sparkling beaded, embroidered metallic-trim trompe l'oeil sash which adds so much depth and texture. The nipped-waist hourglass skirt finishes this garment off with a perfect femme fatale silhouette. Here is a cocktail dress with attitude and elegance.
