NINA RICCI 1990s Vintage Princess Ball Gown Evening Dress w/ Stole Size M
This spectacular vintage Nina Ricci ball gown, c. 1990s, is crafted from a nude peach blush silk and yards and yards of nude peach blush tulle finished with swirls of sparkling gold glitter. The dress features a corset style bustier bodice with a daringly low neckline and spaghetti straps and an incredibly full floor-length princess skirt that is built from a stiff net underskirt, then masses of white and nude tulle that burst out at the front, the two overlapping colours creating an ombré effect, and above that there are two layers of the main tulle with the glamorous golden sparkle. The amount of fabric that went into this dress is insane, and the dress has incredible weight and volume. Baroque opulence! The bodice has a boned built-in corset that closes with a row of metal hooks and eyes, and the net crinoline fastens with a metal hook and eye. The main dress closes with a zipper above that. No material tag. Hand-finished. Made in France. A grand evening gown that comes with its matching tulle stole.
Excellent vintage condition, appears not much worn. We noted a single small tear to the edge of the exterior tulle, minor, and a single larger one to the interior tulle, invisible. These minor damages get lost in the sheer amount of fabric and will not be noticed when worn.
No size tag - will best fit a DE 38, FR 40, IT 44, US 8, UK 12, MEDIUM with a larger bust and a slim underbust and waist
