Instead, her figure was emphasized by the gown's cinched waist as well as delicate gold and silver embroidery around the décolletage.

The real showstoppers, however, were the long snakes that had been sown onto her sleeves as cuffs, allowing for an almost Medusa-like feel when paired with her tightly curled blonde locks.
