Introducing the new Silver Sequin Claudia Gown, a 40s Film Noir loungewear-inspired evening gown in sparkling sequins. The shimmer and movement on this dress really have to be seen to be believed! Designed exclusively for us as part of the Alexandra King for Deadly is the Female Collection and extremely limited edition.
The Silver Sequin Claudia Gown is a draped sequin dress with a velvet sash tie waist and flutter sleeves. It features a V-neck that can be either modest or more daring, depending on how you tweak the gathers that run through the body of the dress. There is also a split in the front so you can flash just a hint of leg as you walk! The glittering fabric makes this dress feel opulent and perfect for parties, weddings, or festivals.
Cut to the floor and slightly longer at the back for maximum elegance and drama, and minimal trip risk! You'll also find hidden pockets - our all-time favourite finishing touch, especially on an evening dress! The dress is semi-sheer and so is sold with a slip to wear underneath, but we love the idea of wearing it without for a more daring look.
Glamour meets comfort!
The Silver Sequin Claudia Gown perfectly combines our desire to look glamorous but still be comfortable! Cleverly designed, the gown is one size fits most, up to a 46" bust. This is because the dress is cut with lots of fabric through the body, which drapes beautifully. The wide sash belt gathers everything in for an elegant hourglass shape when you tie it at the waist. You can choose how and where you tie the sash for a fit tailored to you. The sash is cut in soft velvet fabric so you can really cinch your waist in. This ingenious design means you can pretty much always grab this dress and throw it on!
The transformation from unflattering smock shape to luxuriously draped evening dress has to be seen to be believed! Take a peek through the photos to see what the dress looks like before the sash is tied. Tying the sash is easy - simply wrap it around your body once or twice (it's up to you!) and knot it. Just try to ensure the sash isn't twisted and that it is lying flat. For more info on tying the sash, you can see our handy video by clicking here!
Inspired by a dress worn by Barbara Stanwyck in the 1944 Film Noir drama Double Indemnity and lots of classic loungewear from the era. We gave our version the Deadly treatment to vamp it up even more!
