There is no more elegant shape than a well-made sheath dress. I have thought this before, but it was never so profoundly drummed into my head as when I saw the incredibly inappropriate butt-shots of Princess Letizia and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy during a recent state visit. It is wrong that this was the photo published around the world from this state visit – and yet it is an eye-catching and beautiful photo. Now what makes it so is not just that they are lovely women, but that they are both wearing sheath dresses that really accentuate their form. And so, to show you what I mean, I chose another incredible sheath dress, this one from Victoria V.
