This beautiful Givenchy gown is worn by Sabrina as she attends the Larrabee’s party.
The gown appears to be in two parts. A strapless sheath dress, with a long overskirt (almost like a peacock’s tail) that appears to fasten over it with a belt. Sabrina makes an entrance:
The back of the bodice is at its lowest at the centre back. The sheath dress appears to fasten up the centre back with a zip and hook and eye:
Masterful gathering into the belt!
The overskirt is longer at the back and shorter at the front sides so that it trails along behind Sabrina as she walks:
Either the lowest layer of the overskirt or its hem is a black ruffle (a bit like a dust ruffle). In this shot we can also see that the column dress has a layer or petticoat of what looks like a satin which is what gives it body:
Sabrina arranges her overskirt. Notice how the embroidery is even on the underside of the overskirt. The overskirt looks very thick- is this layers of tulle over a taffeta-like silk? There don’t appear to be any seams at the opening edges of the underskirt- perhaps the edges actually meet in one seam at the centre underneath the skirt?
Close up of the bodice embroidery. It’s interesting that bits of the embroidery are obviously lighter than the ground colour of the dress- what colour is the dress- a pale pink?
