Wedding Inspiration: The Couture Bride

I love checking out the couture collections from Paris, as I am always in awe at the craftsmanship that goes into each piece, and I adore that no gown is too big when it comes to couture. Normally for the spring shows I am pairing up beautiful gowns with gorgeous actresses and hoping that they will wear on the Oscars red carpet, this year however being surrounded with wedding magazines getting inspiration for my own gown I thought I would share some couture bride inspiration.

Top of my wishlist, if I won the lottery, would have to be getting a wedding dress designed by Elie Saab, this man is a genius and his spring 2014 collection was another stunning scene of decadent elegance, gown after gown was just beautiful and the bridal moments were stunning.

The final gown above literally took my breath away when I was watching the live-stream, everything from the off-white hue to the exquisite embroidered detailing and voluminous silhouette – simply stunning. Just imagine how magical it would be to wear a dress like this on your wedding day, you could rest assured that no-one would be stealing your spotlight!!!

As well as Elie Saab, the ethereal musical Valentino gown really caught my eye, so it doesn’t scream traditional bridal gown but there is something about that I think would work for a wedding, especially if you have a love of music.

Other gorgeous dresses that I loved included Dior’s simple-yet-modern gown with its textured perforation dot design, the statement peplum gown from Alexis Mabille’s exquisite collection, and the delicate lace embroidered Valentino gown that will never go out of fashion. Also how divine is this heavily embellished white gown by Georges Hobeika – so swoon worthy!!!

As well as the divine, couture weeks also showcases the flamboyant and more out-there of pieces, including some that could work for some very confident brides. How about the showgirl look from Jean Paul Gaultier or how about walking down the aisle in Stéphane Rolland’s white jumpsuit with wings?

If you won the lottery – which Couture bride would you be?

Pitch Perfect: Brittany Snow Shines in Georges Hobeika

wpid Photo 25 Sep 2012 1954 Pitch Perfect: Brittany Snow Shines in Georges Hobeika %tag

Who: Brittany Snow

Where: At the ‘Pitch Perfect’ premiere in Los Angeles

Wearing: A periwinkle blue Georges Hobeika couture cocktail dress featuring lace embellished with Swarovski beads and organza and velvet floral appliqués, from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with pointy silver heels and diamond earrings

Verdict: I am a big fan of Brittany Snow, she is just so beautiful in the face, the problem I have though is that she never really shines on the red carpet like I would like – well that was until last night.

This gorgeous Georges Hobeika couture cocktail frock is perfection, I love the colour, I adore the beaded bodice, and I am totally blown away by the floral appliqués on the skirt, add in her updo and pink lips and this is a striking look.

This is the second gown I have loved from the Lebanese designer this week, Julianne Hough looked stunning in her strapless aqua gown at the Emmy Awards, I think I am going to have to check out this designer a big more closely as I’ve been impressed with his couture looks.

Do you like Brittany Snow’s baby blue cocktail dress?
