Physical description
Hot pink strapless gown with raised rounded waistline, bow at centre front and undulating deep ruffle at hem, longer at the back and shorter at the front. The gown is lined in red organza which is seen subtly through the gauze-like weave of the outer fabric. The accompanying triangular wrap is also finished with a wide deep ruffle.
