Despite the simplicity of the embellishments, it is a magnificent gown that is captivating in its sophistication and elegance.
The beautiful bateau neckline continues into a dramatic drape across the bodice and ends at the waist. The different textures of the bodice and the skirt have been created so beautifully that a slender waist is highlighted perfectly in this fit and flare gown.
