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 cocktail dress, dating back to his 1979 collection, is a beautiful example of his brilliance. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; metallic gold and black graphic illusion burnout silk velvet. I adore the elegant slight-puff shoulder billow bodice with lean, long zipper-wrist sleeves. The five-inch long cummerbund nipped waist adds the perfect amount of drama to this timeless beauty. The a-line skirting, with flattering tiered ruffle detail, finishes this garment off with a perfect "femme fatale" vibe. As Givenchy said, "The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress."
