About the dress :

Extraordinary Gianni Versace metal mesh oroton toga style dress. A similar dress is in the Collection of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Gianni Versace celebrated rock and roll, flashiness and the nouveaux riches. he made bad taste, good taste and invented the supermodels. He was also a giant of creative talent and unique vision and the world of Italian fashion design is a lonelier place without him. This incredible metal mesh dress is from the first season Versace showed his patented material ‘Oroton’. He wanted a material that would be like the armor of a medieval warrior but to drape as a fluidly and softly as a Madame Gres gown.

    • Best description….Las Vegas!!!…..reminds me of the gold dress she wore in Ibiza except this is even tackier…who cares if it’s Versace couture vintage. The ex-supermodels at versace’s recent fashion show wee wearing this gold material, including Cindy Crawford but they looked fabulous. Amal is trying to pretend to not care about being a fashion model for the clothes since she’s a human rights attorney but she isn’t fooling all of us!

  1. mmmmmm…… just read an news item about Kim Cattrall and SJ Parker being frenemies. Only a few weeks ago Cindy Crawford hit the international headlines wearing a Versace mesh dress on the runway and just by chance Amal picks out vintage mesh for one of her appearances.

    the model wears this dress much better and so she should as she is a model, that’s her job. Amal’s rigid arms and little girl pigeon toe posing always looks so stiff. Relax amal You’ve arrived.

    • Amal looks gorgeous in this dress even if, and it is a first, I prefer the way the model wears it (fluffier top and shorter skirt). She is glowing and feels very happy. Her shoes and earrings are great!

    • Agree. She is still trying too hard but she might be feeling insecure with her post-baby body and perhaps that’s why she’s been dressing extra flashy since giving birth.

  2. This dress does not suit her at all. It’s ill-fitting and frumpy her. With a dress like this, you need to own it. t also needs to be worn as a mini.

    • One addendum: I agree that the dress is not draped correctly on Amal. The waist seems dropped in some photos, and that isn’t flattering on her.

  3. I remember an interview at the oscars red carpet when she was asked about her fashion during her wedding week and how she’s becoming an icon- she said ” oh it will pass immsire ” let’s be real amal knows she’s all about fashion and rocks it to the core- showingup for something like this means she’s all about that fashion- which is not a bad thing- a girl needs a hobby 🙂 she’s Lebanese fashion is in the blood darlings

    • Totally agree. Any by the way the earrings are very flashy and oversized….unnecessary with a dress like this. If being a fashion whore is what she loves, she should stop pretending not to care.

  4. Not a fan of the dress one bit. It drapes inconsistently; at times attractive (as on the model) but mostly not and when it hangs straight down, it looks cheap. The whole look just looks so uncomfortable. Shoes and dress.

  5. I’m not crazy about the style of this dress, but I love the shoes. Bummer…i was in LA this past weekend, went to Nobu and she didn’t go!

  6. Nati or anyone? What’s going on under Amal’s armpit in one of the pics of her exiting the car?
    Can’t make it out if it’s some kind of undergarment or what. TIA.
