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 1979 collection, is a beautiful example of his brilliance. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; navy blue and ivory double layered French Duchess silk-satin. I adore the elegant off-shoulder ruffle bodice with lean, long zipper-wrist sleeves. The backside bow-sash creates the perfect amount of drama to this timeless beauty. The hourglass nipped-waist skirting, with flattering curve ruched 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."
