We love Cameron Diaz. As a matter of fact, one of our favorite Oscar Red Carpet looks was when Cameron wore a variation of the Emanuel Ungaro Haute Couture gown below with a vintage belt and effortless hair to the Academy Awards in 2002. It was modern, sensual, and the antithesis of trying to look like someone you aren't. We are delighted to revisit this famous kimono style printed silk wrap gown in a most democratic size. Whereas Cameron's gown was a runway sample, this one was custom made for a client who is closer to a contemporary size 10 and with it's wrap style can fit a US 8 to 12. Finally a fantastic and sexy gown that isn't minuscule at Decades. We suggest you wear it belted and are showing it with a vintage YSL belt, but we would love it with a silk sash, too. If you plan to sip soup in this dress, mind the sleeves....they are pleated and exaggerated so avoid the gazpacho! We can't wait to discover who will buy this dress and then we can have the ultimate game of "Who Wore it Better?"
