This is a sensational little black dress designed by Gianni Versace for Gianni Versace Couture. We have documented Eva Herzigova modeling this dress on the Milan runway in Versace's Autumn/Winter 1995/96 show. You can find the runway show here (cut to 3:20 to see how incredible the dress looks on Eva when she takes the coat off!)
In classic Versace style, this is no ordinary LBD! It has a plunging V neck in the front and back, with a small inverted V detail in the back. The sleeveless dress has straps that cut back sharply for a well tailored look, as well as a hidden built-in bra for more structure.
Versace knew how to design the perfect black dress, and this is one of those pieces that everyone needs in their closets - it will be your go-to dress for cocktail parties and dinner dates!
The dress is black wool and is lined in rayon with a side zipper closure. It was never worn, and has the original Gianni Versace Couture tags attached. The style name is 'Donna Dress'.
The dress is labeled a size 40 which is approximately a US size 4. It's always hard to speculate size because different manufacturers use different guidelines. So we always encourage our clients to use the measurements provided for the best fit!
There is a slight amount of stretch to the dress so there is a little bit of room in the measurements and the dress is meant to be worn fitted, so you can decide how tight you would like it to be!
LENGTH from top of shoulders: 41"
