The one refreshing thing I viewed during Hollywood's Christmas (AKA The Oscars) was demure seemed to describe so many of the dresses that the stars wore on the red carpet.  It was less about slits up to your ovaries and plunges down to your pupik.   Angelina Jolie was totally covered, as was Camilla Alves (one of my favorites of the evening) except for a bit of nape.  Yes, Lupita showed sternum but the dress wasn't vulgar.  Kate Hudson balanced her boobies while draping her body in sensual Versace that covered most of her assets.  Oscar winner Cate Blanchett wore an Armani Prive that was a variation of a tee shirt gown - albeit one with exquisite hand embroidery.  That's where this Givenchy Haute Couture dress comes in.  Like Cate's, it has short sleeves (these are caped) and it doesn't show much skin but looks positively regal - quite sexy too.  A flattering neckline for so many women, this floral embroidered gown is perfectly lady like and demure without being monotonous.  I have a feeling this was during Julien MacDonald's tenure at Givenchy, but perhaps one of our savvy followers can confirm or correct me.  How do you feel about going demure?
