I mentioned a while back that Alan Hannah had the most amazing outfit at the White Gallery which made everybody smile, and here it is finally. Isn’t it seriously seventies sensational?! I would LOVE to see an edgy bride wearing this.
I’ve noticed in my Google Analytics that (for some reason) I keep getting hits from people wanting to know the most beautiful wedding dresses of all time. Which made me think, hey, great idea for a blog post (though I’m limiting it to the celebrity angle so it’s not too huge)! So thanks, you creative surfers. But then I got to thinking, well, that’s a pretty weighty topic to claim knowledge on, and really this ought to be a democratic process. So I need your help, lovely readers.
What celebrities do you think deserve to be on the top 20 list? Once I have a list, I’ll open up a poll, but I need the list first. Feel free to pull from films, real life, the past, the present, wherever – I’d love you to contribute.
I’m starting it with two dresses (that are in fact v. similar) – Grace Kelly’s wedding dress, and Katherine Middleton’s wedding dress. So, what else?
If you’ve always hankered after Vera Wang but thought it was waay out of your budget ballpark, something MOST exciting happened at the beginning of the year – Vera Wang teamed up with David’s Bridal (the largest bridalwear retailer in the US, and by largest, I mean 300 stores and counting *gulp*) to create a diffusion line. And predictably, the dresses are beautiful.
Obviously there are also bridesmaid dresses by David’s Bridal, but specifically there are Vera Wang bridesmaid dresses! Oh yes indeedy, and they are so pretty they make your eyes ache. Beautiful lines, dramatic detailing… bliss.
Caroline Castigliano have brought out their own range of accessories to suit their gowns (something that more and more designers are doing – such a brilliant idea), and they’re extremely pretty. If you’d like to see the accessories in Real Life, pop over to one of their boutiques.
Everything about this Amsale gown is delicious, from the richness of the colour through to the hand-pleated detailing on the skirt. Yum!
Update: I watched the final of Brothers and Sisters last night (can’t believe it’s the last one ever – *sob*), and watched Sarah get married in a tea length version of this very dress, which looked beautiful. Though I thought her veil looked a bit twitty.
