There is no wedding dress on earth as young and beautiful as this. Balenciaga carves ivory gazar in a shoulder-circling headdress and train. Floating beauty.

Balenciaga gives cloth a purity and calm nothing can disturb - the bias oval curves of gazar spread taut the length of a bridal headdress and train, and  a dinner cape and dress.
