We are biased for bias gowns and this early 1980s Valentino might make you biased, too. A classic 30s style silhouette in slinky black silk velvet, the dress is enhanced by black chiffon waves that cascade along the length of the dress. If you have great jewels, this gown is a tremendous foundation for the bling in the safe. Also, we love the idea of wearing a super-duper long strand of pearls with this gown for a bonafide old Hollywood look. If you scooped up any of the amazing Chanel Gripoix sautoirs we posted a few weeks ago you can definitely wear them with this Valentino gown. This is a black tie gown that you will never tire of and often turn to when you get that eleventh hour call to turn it out for a night on the town.

Valentino Boutique black velvet bias cut with chiffon cascade evening gown, c. early 1980s. Size 4 to 6 SOLD
