I thought about calling this Cardinal Sins, but there’s nothing sinful about this delightful gown from Paper Couture. This is a dress for conquering the world.

If you are wearing this dress, you will be the center of attention, the wonderful cardinal red drawing all eyes with its clarity. This red doesn’t flirt with other shades, no cozying up with blue or yellow, it’s a powerful, pure red. The Kookie platforms are also the same rich cardinal red.

There’s a lovely short train of feathers, presumably ostrich feathers dyed cardinal red.

The simple bodice is a perfect frame for dramatic ornate jewelry and the Parrot Stone Necklace and earrings are dramatic, ornate and stunning.

Here’s a clear shot of the earrings and the skin – from the RIO line of skins by IC-Skins. This  Gae Neutral Red Faint Metal and part of a review pack from IC-Skins designer Ina Centaur. You can see how clear and fresh the skin is. On me, this skin reminds me just a bit of Julia Roberts, more the impression of the fresh, healthy glow of the skin, I think, than an actual physical resemblance.

This gives you a closer look at the detail of the skin – its clarity and luminous quality – though of course, you should always try demos. You also can see the extraordinary detail of the earrings.
