Channeling Betty Draper Today

While we at Vnyc obviously adore vintage we must admit that we are highly cautious when it comes to looking TOO vintage, after all, there is nothing cheaper or more banal than looking too retro, too costumey. And with "Mad Men's" Betty Draper making a vibrant yet sophisticated splash on today's fashion scene, serving as muse to many, we couldn't think of a better way to channel her aesthetic strengths than with this divine 50's inspired MOSCHINO party dress. Its an ultra-femme couture-like MOSCHINO party dress that is made out of a sumptuous almost foamy feeling iridescent red/pink abstract tone-on-tone printed taffeta. It boasts an elegant dropped waist with a pleated bottom half and a dramatic sweetheart neckline with an off-the-shoulder collar complete with a large off-set bow. It may scream 50's drama, Betty Draper and what not, yet something about it's composition in this heavily filled decade of revivals feels crisply modern, and totally fresh.
