Gown Shapes Explained

Mermaid

If you have an hour glass shape, pour your curves into this fit-and-flare style. The top may be ladylike, but the bottom is pure siren. Cut from Alencon lace, the gown has a high-necked sweetheart bodice with illusion cap sleeves; a cathedral train finishes the skirt. About $2,145, Blue by Enzoani. Earrings, Siman Tu. Ring, Martin Flyer.

Beauty Note

For a seductive, petal-infused scent, try Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One Eau de Parfum Spray.
