Hide and Seek

In the early 1980's Yves Saint Laurent hid a gem somewhere on this gorgeous Haute Couture gown. Can you spot the gem? We will give you a hint, "as the tail wags, the dress shall shine." Did you figure it out? Fine, the gem is hidden on the lower back; look at the last picture in this post. The gown is fashioned from aqua silk satin and has a crew neck, long sleeves, and a sultry drop waist. The pièce de résistance is the large slit down the back of the gown that reveals a single strand of crystals. Hanging from the center of the strand is a large clear gem, and what woman doesn't like being surprised with gems? This gown is perfect for one of those once-a-year extremely glamorous balls... Perhaps something like the Met Ball, which we believe is coming up rather soon!
