For over forty years Valentino has been one of the most prominent names in fashion, creating some of the world's most elegant and classic designs. It was Valentino's desire to design clothes that would celebrate the female form and accentuate a woman's sensuality. "I don't think any man in the world wants to go out with a woman dressed like a boy," he once said. This ultra-chic black and white babydoll cocktail is a perfect example of his vision. The dress is fashioned from high quality black silk-faille with ivory white silk-organza trimming. I love the white detachable wide bertha style collar, detachable black velvet neck tie and velvet dome buttons! The flirty skirt nips in at the waist for an ultra-flattering silhouette and also features two slant flap pockets. Valentino has dressed some of the world's most glamorous people, including Princess Margaret, Julia Roberts and Claudia Schiffer. I totally see this rare show-stopper lighting up any special event.
