Not many designers become head management for a fashion house and less than a year after, are awarded the France Haute Couture Golden Thimble Award. That's exactly what happened to Danish designer Erik Mortensen when he took the helm at Pierre Balmain in 1982. The Haute Couture dress below is a product of Mortensen and Balmain's 43 year collaboration.

Made of silk satin and thoughtfully draped, you'll instantly be inspired to channel your inner diva. The sleeves are tailored, balancing the dresses relaxed silhouette. Throw on the marabou feathered shawl with shocking pink and the spotlight's all yours!
