You all remember the stunning and unforgettable floor sweeping red ball gown that Julia Roberts wears to go the the opera in pretty woman, the dress that represents her progression from the girl from the streets of Hollywood to a lady, elevating Vivian as an emblem of beauty. Yes, that very dress was created by Vicky Tiel. We have been having a Vicky Tiel moment lately, not only did Julianne Hough snatch 'best dressed' at the Kim Kardashian's wedding, in a black Vicky Tiel she purchased here at Decades, but also we have been reading "It's all about the dress" a book by Vicky Tiel and her career of four decades designing clothes that make real women look fabulous. We have always been a fan Vicky Tiel gowns and the 'look at me' effect they have.
This off the shoulder number captures all that is feminine and lady like. In black slinky jersey draped to accentuate the waist and rouched to perfection, with the beaded shoulder strap, is exactly what you need to wear to an engagement party or afternoon tea at the Polo Lounge.

Vicky Tiel black jersey one shoulder dress with gold beaded strap detail, c. 1970s. Marked size 12, modern 4 to 8
