Named with love and admiration for the inimitable Beatrix Ost, the Beatrix Gown from Laura Byrnes California is as timelessly elegant as the striking woman that inspired it. Made with plush velvet for a sumptuous feel, this full-length gown features a bateau neckline in the front offset by a dramatic v-silhouette at the back along with figure-flattering princess seaming running from the base of the carefully gathered underbust to the hem to elongate your shape. As gorgeous as the outside is, the inside is a work of art: Shaped bengaline bust cups and an internal bengaline shaper create a smooth silhouette, while the soft knit lining makes it incredibly comfortable to wear all evening long. Finished off with a subtle fishtail train and a bridal zipper at the back (if you have trouble zipping it up, just zip it up and down a few times to loosen it up!), this gown looks stunning as is or paired with your own vintage jewelry for extra glamour.
