Dramatic geometric lines combine with a soft skirt in this satin gown straight off the runway. The bodice has the basic lines of a halter front with the traditional cut out sides and high neck. But this dress has an hourglass-shaped sheer panel that splits the front right down the middle. There it meets the waistband that lifts into a V at the center front and then curves down and around to the scoop back that's just about as low as you can go. The neckband is wide and sits low like a Roman collar as it follows around to the collarbone. Then it opens into a back panel that's cut as a high racerback that leaves the back of the dress open all the way to each side and down to the low back. Sections of crystals are placed in a way that allows the bodice fabric to show through and form diagonal lines that seem to cut through a solid crystal overlay. In sleek contrast, the skirt is one long column of hip-hugging satin that opens into a classic fit and flare gown with a sweep train.
