Long party dress in crape silk, with suspenders. The body is red, with a wide neckline and a padded bust. The straps are narrow and made of red satin, and are attached to two decorative hooks at both ends of the front neckline, formed by two semi-circular rings of gold metal with glass pebbles holding each at one end, a circular golden metal plate with a Medusa head carved in a cameo mode in the circular centerpiece (clear plastic), surrounded by two inward circular rows of small set crystals. The straps cross at the back, with a wide neckline, and end in each rear side with coupling formed by the word VERSACE, with vertically arranged (capital) letters in golden metal and faceted, crimped glass. The body has a curved cut above the waist, from which the dress falls to a full length in blue crape, except on the left side, where the red crape body extends in a strip along the skirt which widens at the end. The dress is fastened on the right side with a red hidden zipper. Thin blue taffeta lining, except at the neckline, where the bust pad is lined with red satin. It is complemented by red tights.
