Here’s a reality that may or may not be unfortunate, depending on your point of view (and your figure type). The delicate, bias-cut, silky slip dress is ethereally phenomenal on the right frame. Yes, it looks best when it skims hip bones and dips across serrated shoulder blades, and for those of us not blessed with those things we just have to accept that it may not be for us. But for those who do have a figure like Patricia Manfield, rejoice all the more: you’re in rare company that can make a dress like this looks so damn good.
Manfield and boyfriend Giotto Calendoli were photographed in Milan.
