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 gold gown, dating back to his 1977 haute couture collection, is a beautiful example of his brilliance. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; metallic-gold abstract paisley printed light weight silk brocade. I adore the low-cut plunge bodice with lean, long zipper-wrist sleeves. The wide built-in cummerbund sash belt 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." A timeless look that is perfect for any modern event.
