This is an absolutely amazing silk dress from Emilio Pucci. Pucci seriously is one of the best designers at cutting dresses for normal, real women. This dress hugs in all the right places, and the top strap was even cut to hang just off the shoulder. There are gorgeous cut-outs on the side, so the dress does a little peek-a-boo without being overly revealing. Truly a spectacular piece that will provide tons of compliments. The dress is a very, very light shade of gray, almost a white but not. Made of 100% and made in Italy. Brand new, never worn, still has the plastic tag attached. Truly a fabulous piece.
“Emilio Pucci’s namesake label …with almost everything carrying the iconic, kaleidoscope-like prints that have become instantly recognizable. Pucci fans included some of the sixties’ most photographed women—Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis—bringing the brand into the public eye and giving it its jet-set cachet. CLIENTS: Nicole Kidman, Madonna, Kylie Minogue” Excerpts taken from: http://nymag.com/fashion/fashionshows/designers/bios/emiliopucci/

“It’s a style that is never dated, a style that we cant get enough of, it’s the style that makes Italy Italian and a style that sets the boot shaped country and its vacationers apart from the rest and it is names like Emilio Puce that keep the gorgeous garment reality from becoming simply a myth… Since the 1970’s Pucci has catered to its fashion tasty clientele via its historical East 64th St store.” Excerpts taken from: http://www.fashionwindows.com/beauty/emilio_pucci/new_york.asp
