An ultra chic and highly coveted John Galliano novelty newspaper print silk chiffon bias-cut slip dress dating back to his 2006 spring-summer runway collection. Galliano first introduced the newspaper motif when he was creative director at Christian Dior. He perceived the idea of the print from a 1935 Elsa Schiaparelli dress. Sarah Jessica Parker, Carrie Bradshaw, made it even more famous by wearing the print in an episode of Sex and the City. John Galliano is widely considered one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the early twenty-first century. It is easy to see why when you look at this epic slip dress. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; semi-sheer ivory silk chiffon with novelty newspaper headlines featuring portraits of John Galliano himself! The bodice has a beautiful asymmetric drape that falls off the shoulder. The side covered buttons are such a nod to 1930's fashion. The bias-cut silhouette emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the dress you will reach for anytime you want to be noticed.
Measurements Marked a EU 38 (varies a bit due to bias cut) Bust: 30-34 inches Waist: 24-28 inches Hips: up to 37 inches Total Length: 42 inches
