They are sensuous and feminine - unsure which I fancy best. I adore them all - I wear gowns alot to official events in France & Germany. Such a glamorous post, darling;-)

I'm not sure whether or not I would be able to pull off a long-sleeved gown; nevertheless, I'm obsessed with the Emilio Pucci piece. Gorg! :)

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Love the refined look of long sleeves (almost wore one for my wedding!)

Belle de Ville said...

I love the option of having sleeves. Nobody wants to see a woman over a certain age in a sleeveless gown. It's just not attractive.

Rachel said...

I've never been one to like long sleeves, but I have to admit, these gowns are all gorgeous!

LFC said...

That first Akris gown is so beautiful! Great post!
