The dress at the top (by McQueen) is an hourglass silhouetted, white dress with an amazingly intricate black lace decorative layer. This dress is extremely simple but effective. The incredible use of wool blended puckering lace and jacquard knitting, means that the attention to detail draws us in and causes us to marvel at the effectiveness of the design. Also the use of a white background causes the black lace to stand out. This being very simple could be worn anywhere.
The dress below by Valentino is a black flowing chiffon dress. The intricate gold beading on the dress makes the design more feminine and interesting. The black laced vest-top below makes the dress seem more romantic. The fact that parts of the dress are see through adds a certain level of mystery to the whole effect. This dress cannot be worn anywhere like McQueen’s, but should be persevered for special occasions.
The white, black laced dress above is an impeccable design by Alexander McQueen. Below we have a breath taking black, gold beaded dress by Valentino, both taking their inspiration from the era of dark romance. Which do you prefer?
