Shocking Pink Dior Haute Couture

This is a shocking post. We are actually playing a trick on you! We are not posting the Oscar de la Renta hot pink dress with black belt Jessica Biel wore to the Oscars last year,, but rather posting the vintage Christian Dior Haute Couture by Marc Bohan early 80s strapless wrapped busiter gown just below Ms. Biel's lovely photos. The two dresses remind us of each other in their simple construction and sharp use of color.

The shocking pink Bohan-designed dress is a study in sexy simplicity: A wrapped-bustier style bodice, with a gathered skirt and a thigh-slit that shows off a great pair of gams. The dress is broken up with the removable black satin sash worn at the waist. We often feel the power of Haute Couture is in the cleanest design and details. This dress is the antithesis of rococo, but still features the unparalled construction techniques of the Haute Couture.

Christian Dior (label missing) by Marc Bowan shocking pink bustier strapless crepe dress with black silk satin sash, c 1980s. Modern size 4 to 6 SOLD
