Black is always a safe and classic bet for a black tie event, and with Alex Perry’s exquisite tailoring you really can’t go wrong. A strapless sweetheart neckline and expertly constructed bodice works on all figures and will keep you feeling supported and fabulous into the night. Hire this dress for a timeless and classy look that will blow your red carpet competition away.
We love to style this gorgeous gown with a stunning silver necklace and a deep red lip for a classic, glamorous look. Alternatively, pair with a simple belt to cinch the waist and accentuate your figure. For more elegant evening gowns, try our collection of floor-length gowns.
