This one-piece A-line ball gown combines a detailed bodice with a sleek, satiny skirt. Styled as a modest, high neck halter from the front, the beaded neckband leads to a clever back design with slim straps. They're attached at the neckline and then widen toward the sides to create a teardrop keyhole. The Mikado skirt is pleated at the waist to lie flat but still has the fullness of a traditional ball gown shape. What really adds interest to this gorgeous dress is the beaded design on the bodice. Fashioned with sequins and jewels, the design alternates between curvy swirls and straight lines that highlight the contrast between the modest front and the open back.
