John Anthony is a great American designer that we have admired at Decades for many years. As a a matter of fact, we hosted Mr. Anthony at Decades several years ago and showcased his most recent designs offered through his Couture studio in New York City. We have long appreciated Mr. Anthony's design aesthetic of subtle and understated clothing that earned him not only a Coty Award, but a legion of fans including the wives of US Presidents such as Roselyn Carter, Betty Ford, and Jacqueline Kennedy. Mr. Anthony often uses liquid fabrics and the gunmetal evening dress below is super light and fluid. With slightly defined and padded shoulder and gentle sleeve sleeve that narrows as it travels down the arm, this evening dress cuts a very flattering silhouette. When you are craving something sophisticated and sensual, but not overtly sexy, this is the evening dress for you. It's particularly effective when traveling, as it's virtually weightless. It might not take up much room when you pack your suitcase, but the gown packs a real punch when you wear it. With a fab pair of earrings and sexy shoes, you might not reveal the most skin, but you may reveal the most confidence!
