1991 Azzedine Alaia Documented Runway Red Bustier Bodycon Mini Dress
Iconic micro mini red stretch rayon dress from Azzedine Alaia's 1991 Spring/Summer runway collection. This is definitely a look Cher from Clueless would wear in a heartbeat! AlaiÌˆa introduced the world to the 'body' and to his own skin tight dresses. Truly a showcase for the perfect human form, his bodycon look sat alongside the more masculine power suits of the decade. As Suzy Menkes said, "If there were any justice in this fashion world, Azzedine AlaiÌˆa would be a worldwide household name, instead of a cult hero. He defined the way an entire generation dresses and become the fashion revolution of the last decade." This stunning hourglass dress is a perfect example of his genius. It is made from a mid-weight slinky spandex rayon in a vibrant red color. The fabric has fantastic stretch that hugs and molds to your body to help create smooth lines. As with all Azzedine Alaia pieces, this dress is cut to hug and highlight your every curve. The bustier bodice has a seductive low-cut plunge which creates great cleavage. Such a flattering and timeless look.
