The simple-yet-sultry dress had a thigh-high split, spaghetti halter straps, and was completely backless. However, Sulcer was confident nothing would be exposed. “You have to consider everything. A fitting is not the same as wearing the dress. Bella is smart and confident, and we knew she could wear that dress,” she said. “We knew we wanted to create something really beautiful and iconic in collaboration with Alexandre Vauthier. He is an amazing friend and talent in the industry. Every aspect of the dress was planned.”
