Princess of Couture

Christian Dior pulls out all the stops when creating thematic pieces like this ballerina inspired gown. Dior expanded to New York City in 1949 to capitalize on American interests in their "New Look," and this gown carries that rare Dior New York label.

The pink tulle creates a wispy, glamorous, dream-like quality. So whether you're a true royal or simply the princess of your domain, you'll inevitably feel majestic. Ruching along the bust and gathers extending from the hips offer both texture and drama. Accessorize with a summery Chanel necklace, like the one pictured below, and show off your inner princess!

Christian Dior New York, pink tulle ballerina dress, c. 1950s. Modern size 4. The tulle has been restored. SOLD
