If you like a touch of glamour with your LBD, this one’s for you. Our Hedy dress is imbued with timeless elegance. This innovative high-waisted silhouette combines the hip-flattering effects of a fit and flare skirt with the tapered hemline of a sheath. But, it’s the bodice that captivates: a satin face shoulder panel with structured pleating across the bust adds perfect poise for those days where the ante is upped. The board room? The White House? A rehearsal dinner? No matter the scene, in the Hedy dress, you’ll take the lead.

(And don't forget about our Shapewear Secret! Each of our skirts has an invisible high-performance lining that lifts, supports and smoothes your figure without any bunching or tugging.)

“The unknown was always so attractive to me . . . and still is.” – Hedy Lamarr

We've got a secret. 

It's shapewear. And it's designed specifically for each dress and sewn inside the garment, providing the confidence boost of your favorite control-top hosiery without all the pulling and tugging. Undetectable on the outside, discreet inside — your gentleman caller won't have a clue. 

Project Gravitas shapewear is milled to our exacting criteria for performance and fit:

  • Medium control for superior slimming & smoothing
  • Breathable, cooling, and moisture-wicking, like your favorite yoga pants
  • Precisely fit to the dress — it won't tuck, roll, move or twist — no adjustments necessary
  • Support band sits below bra and keeps shapewear comfortably in place
  • Peekaboo lace trim with silicon grip keeps hemline in place
