Like the flower that shares her name, the wearer of this beautiful gown is lovely yet dangerous. Meaning “beautiful lady,” Belladonna is from the nightshade family. During the Renaissance, young Italian ladies put tinctures of Belladonna in their eyes to dilate their pupils, believing it made them more alluring to potential suitors.
This fair lady needs no such tincture or added adornment, relying solely on her striking features and the magnificent lace skirt of her gown. Her bodice is simple, midnight blue silk taffeta in a pleasing off the shoulder silhouette with a ruched bust, narrow waist, and flared hips. The skirt is navy blue tulle embroidered with dark purple flowers and vines. Layers of crumpled navy tulle gives volume to the skirt. A band hat of iridescent black and green feathers is a whimsical finishing touch.
