Big news, engaged fashionistas!

NET-A-PORTER.com, a favorite online resource for stylish girls in the know, has launched a bridal collection this week made up of totally exclusive-to-them designs from eight fabulous designers, from Rochas to Nina Ricci.

Available online now, the exclusive bridal range offers eight different limited edition wedding gowns that will allow any bride to feel like an A-list celebrity bride (without the pesky paparazzi to deal with, of course)!

Anyway, my wedding gown pick for this week comes from this amazing collection.

Rochas’ beautifully romantic taffeta-twill gown is a breathtaking choice for your special day. The dramatic full-skirt and optional belt create a flattering waspish waist, and the elegantly simple bodice feels modern and fresh. Sensational chandelier earrings and neutral-hued sandals will complete a beautiful bridal look.

The details?  This dress comes in an off-white taffeta-twill. It features turned-up cuffs, detachable buckle-fastening light-tan waist belt, a dramatic ruched paneled full skirt, ruffled structured short underskirt, and an internal grosgrain strap at the waist. It zips in the back.

I am totally loving this dress because it is youthful and ladylike without screaming “sparkly princess”. The understated elegance of the dress is simply perfect, and the neutral accent of the tan belt is a modern twist.

The gown retails for $9,165.
