Reader Tempest has a CAI/GOI request for a hot, hot Galia Lahav-inspired number. She commented on this post with:
“I am in love with the Galia Lahav La Dolce Vita collection; in particular the Antonia. I could also go for the Galia Lahav Empress Collection — the Juno — but with a satin fabric, lace is not really my thing. My ideal budget is to be under $1000, if you all could please help me find something similar I would greatly appreciate it!!!”
Both the “Antonia” and the “Juno” feature a mermaid silhouette, deep sweetheart neckline and open back. I looked for similarly slinky floor-length gowns in satin or silk, with a deep v-neck or low back. Bonus points for beaded or embroidered embellishments, or cut-outs. I also made sure to avoid lace options in my search. Let’s check them out!
Galia Lahav “Antonia,” La Dolce Vita Collection, $10,800
And one that’s a little over $1,000 …
