I am a huge fan of Tom Ford's work at Gucci and it's amazing to think that this iconic jersey column gown with keyhole revealing gilt hardware suspended by a thong is from fall 1996.  It could be coming down a runway today and still be heralded. As shot by Mario Testino and worn by South African model Georgina Granville in this famous Gucci ad campaign pictured below, the look continues to be modern, provocative, and ultimately timeless.  I really do think it is one of the great dresses of the 1990s.  We have just received the black version of this formidable gown which is a true collectible.  Ford was definitely influenced by both Halston and Rudi Gernreich and this is a perfect example of Ford's formidable work for Gucci.  Do you agree this is the gown of the decade?  It's in my book by the way!
