Backs Makes A Statement

I am so mesmerized when it comes to the detailing and design on the back of a dress; I don't get the same WOW factor if a similar design was on the front. There's something about the back of a dress that has a lot of drama going on; it gives a more sexiness feel to it and a high-end look. The front of the dress can be plain and simple with no decoration, but the unique design of the back adds much charm to the dress. It's impossible to not have your back to someone, so why not give them an eye full.

The back of this Christian Dior's organza dress stands out with an accent bow 
and a draped cowl back featured in U.S. Vogue, March 1, 1965 issue
