Once in a while, a wedding gown design is so delightfully fresh and beautiful that it literally makes me gasp with happiness. This gown from Oscar de la Renta had just this effect on me.
First shown at his Spring 2013 show a few months ago, the gown (known as “look 18″) is simple and flattering in shape, but amazingly complex in texture.
The strapless, white floral guipure gown features a blue satin faced organza ruffle train, an obvious nod to the tradition of brides wearing “something blue”.
The beauty of this dress lies not just in its impeccable fit, but in the use of contrasting fabrics for dramatic style.
How perfect would this gown be for a bride who has selected blues and greens as her wedding palette? I am absolutely loving the subtle bouquet of blue and white flowers featured in the runway show.
