Once again, My Precious….by Agnes Finney has released a simply stunning, elegant uber formal gown the Queen Victoria in Black (also available in white, not shown here). I am always totally amazed at the detail work that goes into Agnes’ builds. The lace work in the bodice (and the dress also comes with a nude bra, with plenty of shades to suit every human skin tone in SL so you can wear the gown without nipple showing). As I always say, you always want to leave them wanting more. I am always amazed at the movement of the long flowing skirts in SL. How natural they are getting and the beautiful black skirt, with it’s layers of light transparent fabric is no exception. Also integrated into the gown is something I am noticing more and more in SL fashion, and that is the use of butterflies. (It can also be seen in the Yula Outfit from Gizza and in many of Boudoir’s builds). This dress has it all, a skirt with a long train, a lace bodice and the butterflies at the waist…and yet, it all works. The dress does not seem busy. It is elegant and fits together perfectly. My favorite feature of the gown is the super sexy plunging back. There is nothing, to me, that exemplifies sexyness than a woman’s bare back. I also need to point out the delicate lace embellishments at the bottom of the skirt. AMAZING texturing. It can also be worn with and without the lace collar. I think it’s just fantastic when you are able to achieve more than one look with a single outfit.
The hair I chose to top this look off is Mystery by Lyrique. Unlike other updo’s that attempt the same look, this is NOT a hair attachment but does wonderfully what is one of the hardest things to do in SL hair….and that is pull off a formal updo simply. I love the added pearl work in the hair as well. It’s simple, elegant and fun.
