Who wears a cape? Then again, who wears a mantilla? (Actually our friend Diane Pernet rocks a pretty high mantilla better than a young lady painted by Goya). What does one get when one mixes a cape with a mantilla?: Apparently this Arnold Scaasi tiered Chantilly lace tango gown with cape! This is what we call a show stopper dress. It's also perfect for the bevy of black tie galas and weddings rapidly approaching in the spring and summer. Have to play dress-up in the Hamptons or St. Barths? Then wear this. And don't negate the cape. Trust us, when the sun goes down, the shoulders get chilly, so this cape is a statement and a nice alternative to the pashmina you have been schlepping all over. The dress can work also strapless and the back is so sexy. This a dress for which vacations are made!
