Designed to dazzle, the striking black and white 2006 Valentino mermaid gown. In creating his 2006 runway collection, Valentino emphasized high drama in his contrasting black and white eveningwear creations. This gown, in my opinion, is the most dramatic and striking of that collection. Also, very reminiscent of the vintage Valentino that Julia Roberts wore when she won her Oscar!
Fashioned of black and white satin, bias cut, with a strapless corset interior. The contrasting black and white stripe combination at bustline is unique and beautifully enhances the design and style of the gown. Designed with a look and style very reminiscent of Couture of the 1940's and 50's; eras when gowns embodied fabulous haute couture design and appearance. This fabulous "Red Carpet" creation completes the look of high drama with a mermaid fantail back.
