Moschino’s great sense of humor and incredible imagination are captured in this dress. The exquisitely embroidered bust area features two beaded teacups covering the breasts. Moschino’s interest in making visual puns is vividly evident here, since the word cup is commonly used to describe a woman's bust size. The phrase “T42” is embroidered in gold metallic threads on the front of the dress.
