Black Beauty

Last week Nicky Ree dropped on me two colours of her latest creation…the Fiona Gown. One was the orange celebrating the Queen of Netherlands birthday and the other was black, always my favourite colour for formals.

This dress is everything I love about evening wear: Simple, elegant, classic. Where to start? The texture is intricate but not overpowering with Nicky’s usual hand drawn perfection. The bodice, a strapless top with a bust detail of carefully pleated folds and a fall of material from the cleavage. The skirt, svelte with a flare and train. Again, beautifully crafted and designed. The clever bit? The fact that the bust detail, attachment and gloves can be bought separately so you can mix and match to get endless options. Also, the skirt attachments come in opaque or translucent…making it a very pretty detail indeed.

This dress demands glamour, whether under or overstated. I kept the make up simple with a PXL Grace skin, the hair I went overboard on with CBC Kitten with a Whip. The shoes were N-Core TEMPTATIONs in black (not seen).
I felt the jewellery had to be opulent yes not overshadow the dress. For this reason I chose to wear the earrings only of the Alienbear Gold Princess Rosana. Finally, to finish the whole ensemble I wore Zaara’s Kashiti booble ring so the gloves got noticed too.

I love this look and I suspect it will be a firm favourite of mine to dance in for the near future.
