The Melrose Place location of Bridal Style Revealed allowed guests to experience the best in bridal design, straight from the designer showroom. Case-in-point? Carolina Herrera.
This brilliant designer was gracious enough to preview her spring 2010 bridal collection for Unveiled event guests, mini-fashion show style. The dresses? Inspired by the greatest artists, who in their own work have displayed elements of fashion, Carolina Herrera blew our bridal minds out of the water! Here are five of my favorites, attached to work from the artists said to have inspired the collection.
Dress #1: A Vincent van Gogh inspired floral jacquard dress with ruffle applique’.
Dress #2: This Monet inspired strapless tulle ball gown incorporates hand-painted water lilies. Gorgeous!
Dress #3: Every ballerina knows the work of Degas…but Carolina took his work to a whole new level. This ribbon strapped, tulle point d’esprit dress is breathtaking.
Dress #4: Edouard Manet is channeled through this strapless ivory and black rose fils coupe’ gown with a blue taffeta bow.
Dress#5: Last, but not least, this was the absolute show-stopper! This ivory off-the-shoulder gown, adorned with black lace applique’ and a small coral bow (inspired by Diego Velasquez) is perfect for the most eclectic & daring bride!
Each piece in this collection was truly magical, and I’ve never seen a more beautiful living interpretation of art in all my life. What a great way to start my day at this amazing wedding event. Be sure to check in tomorrow for more Unveiled: Bridal Style Revealed goodness.
