Pearls of Paris

This stunning black and white Annabell’s Standard gown is a showstopper! To begin, the neckline is a classic sweetheart with a twist: a band of sheer mesh cuts across the collarbones, creating a peek-a-boo neckline. The dress has long sleeves, in a black mesh, dotted with glittering premium European crystals. The body of the dress is scattered with large specialty half pearls, which glisten and add dimension to the dress. Underneath the pearls are a design of AB crystals in the shape of leaves, travelling from the neckline down around the waits in a V shape. Underneath this is an imitation lace- the lace design is printed onto a lycra fabric, giving the look of lace, while being easier to take care of.

Next, the back of the dress features a similar design to the neckline, with black mesh straps going across the shoulder blades. Below this, the dress is cut low showing off the back. The skirt on this dress makes a big impact! It is made of a white satin fabric and covered with loose ostrich feathers. The ostrich feathers start in black at the top and then switch to white going down the rest of the skirt. The skirt is extremely full, with a horsehair crinoline underneath. Additionally, the dress has attached floats in a white satin hanging from the sleeves of the dress. Finally, the dress has a built in body suit and bra cups.

Pearls are a classic gemstone. They are a symbol for wisdom and purity and are thought to bring good luck to the wearer. Pearls can bring to mind classic midcentury style, a la Jackie Kennedy or can be styled with a more contemporary touch. The pearls on this dress bring to mind Coco Chanel and that classic “je ne sais quoi” of French style. Pair it with some sparkly pearl earrings and a red lip!
