I missed Rate the Dress last week due to my brain switching into complete holiday mode, but at least I left you on a high note! Peter de Kempeneers 16th century Italian noblewoman in blue-green was almost universally popular – but only almost, because there is always one or two who don’t like something! Because of the only almost, our noblewoman came in at 8.3 out of 10.
I’m feeling quite grey this week, so picked a dress to match:
This circa 1880 evening dress from Czechia an unusual grey, and tonally, reminds me of the last Rate the Dress. It features the (relatively) figure hugging natural form silhouette of the late 1870s and early 1880s. The body conscious silhouette is emphasized by a curvaceous cream panel, beating 2011’s illusion dress trend by over a 130 years!
Curve conscious it may be, but the curves are definitely Victorian: with full hips, and back emphasis that would have been supported by a small bustle.
What do you think? Can grey be good?
