Beads outline sequin embellished lozenges on the halter dress body. The open back features a criss cross panel of sequin strips, decorating a bare back. Dazzling lines of sequins are sewn to the transparent skirt, which has a nude lining and extends to a small train. Taking cues from vintage styles, this is a thoroughly contemporary prom dress.
