A plunging neckline that scrapes near to the belly-button is not something every woman is game to wear. Nor is it an appropriate choice for every figure type. But if there’s one way to indulge to turn heads in the right way it’s with the most classic of elegance complete with long sleeves and statement necklace. Emily Senko’s plush velvet gown and emerald jewels in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK are the paradigm example – part Bond Girl, part Gothic romance.
