This is an amazing Mugler dress with that fantastic futuristic feel that you want in a vintage Mugler piece. It is fitted and made of a rich, inky black velvet that gives the fabric a real sense of richness and depth. The dress is cut to hug your curves and is short and cut slim through the skirt. The bodice has an almost corset feel to it and it has internal backing that purposely stiffens it and really gives it structure. The front has his signature curving flame-like design at the bodice edging and the black portion of that design is actually wired so you can change the shape of the points and place them exactly where they sit best on you. Curving in and behind that is a slinky silver lame fabric that curves over the shoulder and can sit like straps on top or be worn to create little shoulder caps like I have styled it. It is superb and still sublimely sexy. This is quintessential Mugler and these really sculpted pieces are so hard to find - a true little treasure. Excellent condition
The fabric is self backed and unlined through the skirt and the dress closes with a side painted metal zipper. Internal stiffening through the bodice and boning and the bodice is finished in the same velvet as the exterior.
