Jovani 8908: Shown here Teal;, also available in Black/White, Fuchsia, and Navy. Many petite ladies think they have to opt for a long gown for special events to appear taller, but with a great short dress you can look like you have mile long legs. You’re lucky enough you can pull off a short design like this mini-length dress. The drop waist sweetheart bodice disguises your natural waist and combines with the high gathered bubble style hem to make you seem supermodel tall! Add a great pair of stilettos and you’re ready to strut your stuff!


Jovani 71905 : Shown here in Royal, also available in Black, Red, and Hot Pink. Gals with broad statuesque shoulder can sometimes look disproportionate in strapless gowns. But don’t get stuck in a fashion rut by opting only for thick straps or sleeves. This Grecian inspired floral one-shoulder look draws the eye to your waist with angles rouching. The body contouring construction is not too tight, so it helps to create a sexy hourglass silhouette.


Jovani 154559: Shown here in Turquoise/Aqua; also available in Fuchsia/Champagne. For the gal who has dangerous curves check out this little number. Don’t shy away from short or form-fitting by choosing a gown that will simply enhance your natural build. The strapless neckline and sweetheart bust with center flower applique give you more support and coverage than a plunging neckline. A flyaway tulle skirt with curly hem is sheer perfect to show off the full sequin skirt, all while making you look like a bombshell right off the silver screen.


Jovani 71928: Shown here in Royal; also available in Fuchsia, Lime, and Black. Calling all tall ladies! DOn’t shy away from short dresses for fear of them being too short. This flowing high waist style will not cling to the body, adding breezy movement and creating the illusion of  more curves. The intricate jeweled keyhole straps flatter a smaller bust and straighter frame. This style looks great with flats or heels.


Jovani 154523: Shown here in Teal; also available in Black/Ivory. Many young ladies who are fuller busted worry about going strapless in a formal gown, but with this fabulous design you are sure to have piece of mind with one shoulder studded in rosettes. The sash at the waist shows off your smallest point with tailored pin tucks. The full ball gown style tulle skirt helps to further balance a full bust; the layered construction creates texture and interest.


Jovani Homecoming 158563;One of our favorites for 2010 Best Fall Style

 Shown here is Jovani Homecoming 158563. This is a sexy short dress that has amazing sparkling details. We all know and love Jovani’s style and this design in particular embraces girlyness along with a rocking edge. It is the perfect attire to wear out on a night of Homecoming victory, or Party celebrations.

The strapless square neckline is vertically shirred. This effect will show off your bust line, without showing it all. Following the bust line, the empire waist is embellished with horizontally wrapped tulle fabric that is embellished with a large flower. The flower is placed on the side of the silhouette which gives the illusion of an hour-glass figure. This technique is so fashionable and helps out your figure as well! Genealogy loves this style. The vertical against the horizontal is the best structure for any frame to balance and give you those curves that you want.

The best feature of this dress is the full ball gown mini skirt. This is a fun detail that will have everyone talking about how flashy and fashionable you are! The skirt is filled with  multiple layers of colored curled tulle. The top layer is dazzled with multi size/color piettes that shimmer in the light. Their pattern is very organic, rising and falling in various places. Such a cute feature to add that special flare that you want!

This dress has a great fabric detail. The over-layers is of a rich royal purple. Starting with the bust an iridescent, almost ice shine prevails through, bringing light to the face. This fabric also follows through the empire waist. The skirt has a personality of its own with all sorts of combined colors.

Here at Genealogy, we love little short dresses, and Jovani 158563 is one of our favs! To check out more of our favorites for this 2010 season visit our website they are all posted!
