Stunning Ungaro haute couture red lace gown ensemble dating back to his 1995-96 fall/winter runway collection. Ungaro, who trained under Spanish designer Cristobal Balenciaga, described himself as a "sensual obsessive" with a reputation for bold looks. This gorgeous documented runway look definitely confirms Ungaro's genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; the highest quality French ruby red hand-beaded floral patterned lace which molds to the body effortlessly. I love the thin-strap scallop edged low-cut plunging bodice with sparkling front center buttons. The matching sheer jacket is a statement piece in it's own right with the dramatic high-neck and lean, long zipper-wrist sleeves. The complex hourglass skirting with slight backside train really looks magnificent when you walk. We added many pictures so one can appreciate this masterful achievement. Breathtaking and timeless; I totally imagine this gliding down the red carpet.
