Celebrity perfect dress

DianaKre | Posted in General Discussion on

I am interested in the construction of the “perfect dress” that was worn by Demi Moore and Cameron Diaz. Does anyone have any info or how tos on this dress?

    Do you have a link to a photo of it that you can post here?

    1. DianaKre | | #2

      I've been searching for it on the web and I can't seem to find anything about it. I saw a picture of it once inside out and it had a lot of powernet panels on the inside.Thanks

    Can you verbally describe it for us? My curiousity is really up. What makes it perfect and did they each where the same dress?

    1. DianaKre | | #4

      it's a form fitting dress that is supposed to give you the perfect shape. I read that it costs $1500.00 and I've seen it in a plaid and a solid fabric. I've seen it inside out and it has power net panels stitched inside. All I've seen on it are a few pictures and a small article. I am really curious about it and how I could make one myself.Thanks

        It's probably the Galaxy dress by Roland Mouret. From what I read in some articles, the dress has an inner corset that sucks everything in.

          That's it! Thanks. Now I wish I could find something about how it was constructed.Thanks

            Afew years ago I made a Vogue Sassoon formal pattern. It was a sheath and had and inside totally built to support you. I hesitated to go thru with all the construction but it sure paid off. I can tell you I wore that dress without a stitch of undies and it held me like a million bucks. I know other advanced Vogue designer patterns have this type of constuction as well. OT- You would think with the thousands she has spent on her body she would be able to put on any old dress! I guess with a hot young boyfriend you can't be too careful!

            It reminds me of the old playboy outfit that the women used to wear. It's patented and would reshape the woman.Diana

            From what i remembered it was made out of stretch felt with a severe inner corset. It's supposed to suck you in on some crazy level. It's also cut very tight to the body and close to the knees.
            here are some pics to help you out.

            here is the plaid version

          5. solosmocker | | #12

            Those are really beautiful dresses. Talk about no waist!

          6. educo | | #13

            it's an amazing dress. I wish i couldd take a look at it.

          7. woodruff | | #14

            Uh-huh... but wouldn't it be great to see how the dress looks like on a woman who weighs over 98 pounds and is under six feet tall?

          8. marijke | | #15

            How right you are.  Even if the style would be flattering on many body types, a heavier woman (and you would not have to be that much heavier!) will never look like that model. 

            Most real women probably look better by playing with some layering (i.e. top and skirt, jacket over skirt or pants, etc).  Maybe one can stand a corset interior for a short time, but I would think that flattering clothes that don't squeeze you into shape would be more practical in the long run.  -- Which is why I liked Nancy Shriber's personalized croquis idea so much!

            I totally understand, I think taking certain elements from this dress can be applied to any body type. In truth though, we all have some kind of body girdle we use underneath some of our dresses to make us a little bit more slimming and this dress is no exception. It's just that this dress is taken to the extreme. When I saw the fashion show on TV the models could barely walk in them because the cut was so close to the knee. There many ways of adapting this dress, making the skirt wider to emphasize an hourglass silhouette so you wouldn't have to resort to some crazy corset. I'm in the process of "knocking" this off from the photos . It's a gorgeous dress!

            Sounds like a dress strictly for standing up. It wouldn't be the first time designers stuffed women into something that was not natural and I guess it won't be the last. Still pretty, though. The dresses certainly could be copied without that corset screaming "when was your last meal?"

          11. educo | | #18

            Just to let you know. Vogue patterns has recently released a pattern for a dress in a almost exact replica of the Galaxy dress. If anyone is interested, is #8280!

          12. WandaJ | | #19

            And, here it is!  I knew when I saw the number you posted that it was this pattern, as I added it a couple of days ago to my 'to buy' list so I could get it when the pattern store puts Vogue Patterns on sale!

            I know, this is very exciting. I bought it off the website because I couldn't wait any longer. I'm so surprised they did this!

          14. educo | | #10

            I would imagine that you have to make the dress as is and then make a separate corset made of the same powernet materials as a bustier. Then from what i have read in couture sewing books, you would attach the corset to the seam allowances on the dress and also construct a waist stay to keep it in place. Then when you put on the dress you zip yourself up in the corset first then zip up the dress. I took a corset making class a while ago and you can suck in your waist to a small measurement if you can stand discomfort for a while. That's the magic in this dress. It's very restricting because of the tight fit and the corset inside.
