Why be a commoner, when one can be an empress? This graceful Roman empress costume is subtly sexy in its regal, womanly quality. The white floor-length dress has lovely gold and black ribbon trim near the hemline and at the empire waist. The maroon sheer drape with gold edging is attached to the dress and hangs beautifully over the left shoulder and falls perfectly across the front and droops gracefully at the back. The armbands of gold and black, plus the golden medallions along the shoulders lend pizzazz and are truly royal yet sensual accents.
