Madame Gres is perfection when it comes to a one-shoulder gown. This late 1960s Gres Couture gown may seem subtle in it's perfection, but on a body it's grace and simplicity never distract from the Goddess in the gown. Sometimes a gown wears the wearer, but this gown supports you and your accouterments. With an empire asymmetric seam, high side slit, and a folded origami shoulder detail, this dress can be worn in a myriad of ways: with gladiator sandals or epic Louboutins. With major chandelier earrings or Bulgari gold cuffs, the possibilities are endless. Like a classic novel that you long to re-read, this is a dress that you revisit often and find new ways to wear it. One is never coming and going in Madame Gres, but one always makes an entrance.
