Vintage 1992 Valentino Couture Sheer-Illusion Beaded Silk Velvet Dress & Jacket



Gorgeous Valentino Couture cocktail dress ensemble dating back to their Fall-Winter 1992 collection. 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 stunning dress and matching jacket ensemble is a perfect example of his vision. The dress is fashioned from a luxurious fully lined silk-velvet. The silhouette is an elegant scoopneck sleeveless nipped-waist hourglass with flattering flounce skirting. He then uses an ingenious sheer-illusion chevron stripe technique for the jacket that gives the set so much depth and texture. I love the sparkling hand-assembled crystal and pearl embellishment. The collar and cuff detailing alone must have taken days! Valentino has dressed some of the world's most glamorous people, including Princess Margaret, Julia Roberts and Claudia Schiffer. I totally see this rare couture show-stopper lighting up any event!
