OMG! Look at these dramatic noir wedding gowns courtesy bridal design maven, Vera Wang. These special occasion frocks, cleverly named Witchcraft, are the hottest news coming out of this week's New York Couture Bridal Fashion Week. Critics are calling the gowns, complete with heavy drama skirts, lace overlays, illusion tops and sweetheart necklines, maudlin. Wang also showed gowns in nude, too. I think these black gowns are fresh. (The birds nest hair is not a requirement.) Nineteenth century monarch, Queen Victoria set the standard for white gowns in the 1800s, so it is time for a change. What do you think about these gowns?
Other hot news out of New York's bridal fashion week: Design duo Badgley Mischka created a ribbon-trimmed to- die for collection of dramatic strapless white gowns. See here. Stiff? Maybe, but gowns that feature sweetheart necklines and fishtail bottoms are quite amazing.
And it looks like bridal designers aren't doing a bevy of long-sleeved gowns per the lead Catherine Duchess of Cambridge. Read about it here I still think long sleeved gowns will be desired by brides, it's just that it takes time for our eyes to get used to it. But then again, there is something about strapless gowns that say princess. I'm so torn.
