I love Jill Stuarts's, Mendel, and Ungaro very beautiful! I have big hips and these types of dresses helps minimize them.

Love draped dresses - very feminine and sophisticated. Most of all - Vionnet and Lanvin.

Love that Lanvin look! Nude is the new hue.

I think the reason why i am so into draped garments is their versatility. A lot of them are so great for layering.Divine draped dressed indeed sweetie! Amazing how inventive designers are draping wise.It gets more clever each season.
