Bridal gowns designers have been crossing over to the red carpet for a few years now, and they indeed use the same trends they do for celebrities as they do for the everyday bride.
The influence is obvious and well-received by both parties. Who doesn’t want to look like a movie star on their big day?
Check out the hottest red carpet looks that are available in bridal gowns of all styles!
This year, we have seen an array of wedding dresses with sheer necklines, also known as illusion necklines, with lovely appliquéd lace or just plain. This look is so feminine and soft looking and perfect for the bride who is not comfortable wearing something strapless. It gives the illusion of bear skin without actually baring anything at all. The look is perfect for most bridal styles, especially the romantic bride, the vintage bride, the bohemian bride and even the modern bride. It is the ideal balance between sexy and sophisticated and can be tailored or embellished to suit so many different tastes.
Show Some Leg!
For the daring bride, oh yes… showing some leg is very hip in bridal fashion right now and it looks like the red carpet trend is here to stay. The slit on a wedding gown looks best with a sheath or empire gown and can vary in height. Those super confident brides who want to feel sexy may go with a rather high one at the top of the thigh, while some brides just want to show a little let with the slit starting at the knee. The choice is yours. Some brides are even getting dresses without slits altered to add one. A statement fabric cut such as this is the only thing you need to wow your guests. The simpler the gown, the better a sultry slit will look!
Shorter hemlines such as tea-length skirts have been all over the red carpet. Celebrities can’t seem to get enough of this wink and a nudge to the vintage wedding gown era. Think Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. The shorter dress offers a retro feeling for warmer weather brides who want to show a little leg in a more subtle way. The correct way to wear this trend is to ensure that hem hits at the calf or shin. Never go too short or you will lose the vintage feel.
