This is a beautiful dress with great attention to detail, especially at this price point. However, the color is nothing like the photo here.That is why I gave it 4 stars. The gown is darker, more of a rose gold. The paillettes are almost a copper color, depending on the light. It is absolutely gorgeous but only for a skin type that can wear warm colors. I returned mine after finding one in lilac. That too was darker than the photo, a mauve rather than a lighter lilac. It will work for me although it isn't the thrill I was hoping for,especially since this is the wedding of an only child. Please keep in mind that the colors are not correctly represented by these photos when ordering. Also I suggest sizing down. I am usually a 6 but in this I am a 4. However, I do highly recommend Tadashi Shoji. He designs stunning dresses!
