Pink Perfection

This Thierry Mugler gown is the perfect shade of pink, ballet pink. Mugler himself was a trained ballet dancer, and at the age of 14 joined the corps de ballet at the Rhine National Opera in Strasbourg, France. Who else could produce such a wonderful combination of ballet and couture besides a trained ballet dancer/couturier? No one, that's who! If you are, were, or know a ballerina, this is the perfect gown! There are several reasons we say this 1) It is Ballerina pink and satin 2) It would make a beautiful non-traditional wedding gown 3) It is BALLERINA PINK! 4) If you are attending anything involving ABT or NYC Ballet, this gown will turn heads. Essentially the gown is a corseted wrap dress with ruching at the bust and around the back. In true Mugler fashion, the right bust is higher than the left (purposely), also there are snaps and hook-eyes everywhere. Though this can make getting in and out a tad cumbersome, at least you know you won't fall out of it. The rib cage is rather tight on this gown but there is adequate room in the hips and thighs.

Thierry Mugler ballet pink corseted wrap gown, c.early 90's. Marked size 36, contemporary size small 4. SOLD
