I love when two dresses from the same designer come from two different women, yet have something similar. Case in point: These two Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche dresses in black and shocking pink. The top dress is crepe thick black jersey with bold pink taffeta straps and equally triumphant bow in the back plus a tasteful slit at the rear, also. The second dress is a cocktail length black velvet with a V-shaped decollete and pink taffeta pouf sleeves and wide sash belt which we have knotted into a bow. They could be cousins, coudn't they. I would assume they are from the same collection, too. Which YSL girl are you?

Yves Saint Laurent black velvet and pink taffeta cocktail dress, c. 1980s. Marked size 36, modern 4 to 6. SOLD
