Madame Gres felt that the true job of the couturier was not to create a name for one's self, as many designers do, but to pay rigorous attention to the clothing. This stunning ruby-red cocktail dress has so much detail, you can tell it was made with loving devotion. The bodice is a seductive low-cut plunge with a sheer embroidered lace backside! The beautiful side drapes overlapping the mini skirt really look incredible when you walk. Grès had an extraordinarily long career, working until the late 1980's. Throughout this period, which encompassed huge changes in fashion, her work remained consistent and timeless. Any one of her elegant dresses could be seen walking a red carpet today.
