With stunning lace insert detailing on the neckline and hem of the piece and small bows on the gold embellished straps, the dress was truly the focal point of the look as Dove paired it with a simple sleek ponytail, dark smokey eyes, and rosy cheeks.
This movie premiere look is especially notable in the realm of fashion history as Gianni Versace was assassinated in the summer of 1997, meaning this dress from the archives comes from a truly pivotal year in the Versace repertoire and was likely one of the final pieces ever created by the designer. (The Atelier Versace Fall 1997 couture collection was actually the last show from the designer, exhibited just a week before his passing.) In 1997, on the runway, Dove’s dress was worn by Naomi Campbell and was the closing look for the show.
Dove’s stardom is on the rise with the release of Vengeance, so here’s hoping we see more iconic vintage red carpet looks from her soon.
