From the Runway: 7 Stylish Wedding Day Looks We Love
1. Separate but Equal (above)
Ines Di Santo’s floor-sweeping Limoges gown flaunts Art Deco–inspired beading along its back, demanding a double take. Pair the sleeveless, silk crepe sheath with a pearl-encrusted bolero to make a statement. $6,380 (gown) and $1,210 (bolero), from The White Dress in Corona Del Mar, Lovella Bridal in Glendale and M Bride in La Jolla.
2. Party Pants
Embellished with pearls, crystals and stylish shoulder detailing, this off-white, wool crepe jumpsuit by London-based designers Ralph & Russo is a trendy alternative to traditional wedding gowns. Price upon request, from Ralphandrusso.com.
3. Top Tier
To achieve its airy, ethereal shape, Claire Pettibone strategically placed tulle and guipure lace insets throughout her Angelica peplum gown. Flared, French ivory lace sleeves and a train lined with pearl silk ensure a stunning entrance. $6,800, from the Claire Pettibone flagship salon in Los Angeles.
4. Buttoned Up
A gathered skirt adorned with Swarovski crystal buttons gives Houghton Bride’s Galina gown a laidback but elegant vibe. Countering the silk crepe de chine creation’s plunging neckline are its more conservative, full-length sleeves. $2,950, from LOHO Bride in San Francisco.
5. Just Peachy
From the metallic trim and draped chain detailing to the flounce skirt with horsehair edging, Hayley Paige’s Daenerys dress is fierce from head to toe. But its peach hue is what solidified our infatuation with the draped georgette, A-line gown. Price upon request, from the JLM Couture Flagship Salon in West Hollywood.
6. Leggy Lady
It’s safe to say Reem Acra’s I’m a Sensation strapless, silk chiffon dress with thigh-high slit shows some leg. The strapless style’s linear embroidery and crystal-accented waist also compliments nearly any figure. $5,995, from Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills.
7. Puttin’ on the Glitz
Meet Arianna, Theia’s fitted, ivory crepe gown with T-back strap. Its glamorous, crystal-encrusted turtleneck elongates the frame and flatters the shoulders. Bonus: No necklace is needed. $1,795, Lovely Bride in West Hollywood.
