A gorgeous Smooth ballroom gown by Designs to Shine. A dress like this is so glamorous it looks like something that would be worn on the Red Carpet, Met Gala, or down the catwalk of Paris. Firstly, it is an all black dress. The bodice is made from a black velvet. On the back, a stretch mesh transitions to velvet. It is sleeveless with thick black straps. A silky fabric creates several godets. The hem of the skirt alternates between three rows of ribbon with a horsehair trim in between. Lastly, the dress has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

The embellishments on this Designs to Shine Smooth gown are luxurious and sparkly. Firstly, appliqués made with specialty large Swarovski crystals adorn the neckline and the waist on the front and back of the dress. Rows of Swarovski crystals drape from the appliqués like fringe. Similarly, Jet Hematite crystals shine brightly on the bodice of the dress. Secondly, three rows of glittering silver, pearl, and black beads attach at the front neckline and wrap to the back of the dress. Thirdly, this dress has two gauntlets as accessories. They are made of a black fabric with additional Swarovski crystals.

Hollywood glamour, which could absolutely also be the name of this dress, is a timeless style that is flawless and charming. A source of inspiration for many designers in current date. Fashion Designer Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino had look after look on the runway that paid ode to the glamour of the past. Chic silhouettes made from lustrous satin fabric in red, white, and black, paired with long gloves. Piccioli is frank about “cutting the crap” about fashion saying, “I hate it when people talk about ‘storytelling.’” He lets the simplicity and beauty in his luxurious designs do all the talking.
