The white wedding gown has always stood for purity and properness, and yet the symbol retains that honor, but has turned up the sex appeal for 2015. Oh, yeah….Get ready for some peek-a-boo, bridal fashion!
All one has to do is look at designer Vera Wang’s beautiful, nuptial dresses that made their mark during New York City’s Bridal Fashion Week last month. Talk about transparency! Marchesa, Naeem Khan and Reem Acra also followed suit, but it was Wang, whose sexy and seductive wedding dresses that stole the show, and at the same time made everyone blush.
According to the UK’s DailyMail online, Wang’s dresses weren’t afraid to show off some skin:
“Her lace and tulle gowns put plenty of skin on display, from arms and legs to chests and stomachs. Even the models’ underwear could be seen through the flimsy fabric, conjuring images of boudoirs more so than bridal gowns.”
Vera Wang’s wedding creations still maintained her signature, cool elegance, but in a nightgown kind of way.
Wang sees the wedding dress style evolving, as she explained to Yahoo Style. The word demure appears to be something in the past:
“[Brides] want to feel more sensual, more exposed, more sexual. There is a big movement towards that, and of course I like to think that I’m translating a movement in wedding fashion with my own vocabulary.”
Aisle be seeing you, so to speak.
Thanks to Bernardo Chua for showing me how wedding style has evolved lately.
