This dress requires Nature's Miracle or a good Nip Tuck. James Galanos has designed a gravity defying bias cut out dress with curved seams on red silk crepe with one shoulder strap, half a bandeau, and a bare midriff -- all the while, maintaining a sense of sexuality and decorum in Reagan Red. If you have surrendered to the power of yoga, you probably have the arms and abs for this dress. If you are top heavy, skip this dress, as it's made for a smaller athletic sized chest (gymnast?). This is one of the most exciting examples of Galanos Gone Wild and the architecture of the dress enhances a beautiful body without being vulgar. If Galanos is too often thought of us as being Nancy Reagan's designer of choice, realize his talents are many and he give Gianni Versace a run for his money as exemplified in this 1980s design.

James Galanos red silk crepe one shoulder, bandeau, and cutout gathered evening gown, c. 1980s. Modern trim and tone 4. SOLD
