This black Balmain sleeveless crystal & pearl embellished dress is dripping in decadence and opulence...rather apt considering this striking number was inspired by Versailles and Louis XV’s favourite mistress Madame de Pompadour (chic ahead of her time really). The result of old world craftsmanship, this sleeveless dress boasts a halterneck with two gold button closures, an open back, addition rear zip fastening and glistening crystal and pearl floral embellishments at the front. Cut with a mid length, style your Balmain fitted dress with Gianvito Rossi 'Versilia' sandals for an arresting formal dinner look.

MEET THE DESIGNER
The Browns’ edit of Balmain encapsulates the prestigious fashion house’s baroque and rock-chick aesthetic. Founded by Pierre Balmain in 1945, the fashion designer was one of the creative masterminds behind French fashion’s post World War II renaissance. The innovator of the brand’s signature ‘Jolie Madame’ aesthetic, the famed designer replaced the outdated utilitarian look with opulent and richer designs, which became an instant success amongst Hollywood’s elite. Since Balmain’s death in 1982, the brand has welcomed a plethora of successors through its doors who have continued to emulate the brand’s elegant and feminine vision. Since Olivier Rousteing was appointed as Balmain’s creative director in 2011, the ‘new generation’ brand has undergone a trendsetting revival which has pushed the couture house to the forefront of fashion and as a result has gained a powerful A-list celebrity following.
