So, it’s no secret that bridal takes a major nod from the Red Carpet… and the Red Carpet certainly loves the superstar designers of the bridal world: recently we’ve seen Ramona Keveza join the ranks of runway staples right next to Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier. So, the Golden Globes and the Oscars are always a great preview for what styles of gowns we may see coming down the runway during the next Bridal Market.
This year, we noticed cleaner silhouettes with more focus on cuts and elaborate tailoring and gowns that really showcased the fabrics, materials and construction of the gowns. Here are some of our favorites.
What a week for Lady Mary! First Michelle Dockery wows us all in her fabulous wedding gown on Downton Abbey and then the very next Sunday she wows us in this Alexander Vauthier gold and white stunner. I think we’re going to see a lot of this lace top effect paired with a more fitted, sheath silhouette. I don’t know if the shoulder pads will make the cut, but, can’t you imagine a variation on this in white? Stunning!
Absolutely everything about this Christian Dior dress Jessica Alba wore- from the fit to the detailed stitching to the train- just perfect. Color it white, slap it on me and get me the to church on time!
So, not everyone wants to go down the aisle with a plunging neckline, BUT I can’t help but get the feeling that Kate Hudson’s simple, Alexander McQueen gown paired with giant, dramatic Jennifer Meyer jewelry is going to be a look that we see replicated in some fashion on the pages of bridal mags this time next year.
We’ve already seen prints making their way to bridal on the runways, but haven’t seen to many real-life brides take on this look: I’m wondering though if Lucy Liu’s Caroline Herrera gown might not change a few minds. In white, with this fabulous, bold floral print any bride would be the star of the show.
We just loved Ariel Winter’s age appropriate Valentino Resort look. It’s also a fabulous silhouette (an so well styled) and I present it for your consideration as a Rehearsal Dinner look to copy OR for the bride wanting to be picture perfect for their trip to city hall!
