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?

Cannes 2012: Cheryl Cole Looks Gorgeous In Stéphane Rolland and L’Oreal Paris Make-up

Who: Cheryl Cole

Where: At the Amour Premiere at the Palais des Festivals during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A cap-sleeve white jersey fitted Stéphane Rolland Couture gown adorned with red embellishments and a red ostrich feathered train, from the spring/summer 2012 collection; teamed with  David Morris diamond  chandelier earrings, a diamond bracelet and a red clutch

Verdict: Once again Cheryl Cole was stunning at Cannes, and once again she turned to Parisian couture designer Stéphane Rolland; last year it was a plunging white gown and this weekend she shined in a train to rival fellow L’Oreal Paris ambassador Eva Longoria in Marchesa. The red carpet event may have been soaked but Cheryl didn’t let that get in the way of showing off this gorgeous gown. I love everything about it, from the exquisite scarlet red feathered train to the scoop back and cap sleeves, and the divine embellishments just above the hemline, I just wish the carpet had been a different colour to really show-off the train.

This is one truly stunning gown, I think this will be high up on my list of best dressed for Cannes 2012. With a look like this I am excited for her to attend the premiere of ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’, which she has a guest role in.

In Cannes as part of her L’Oreal Paris ambassador duties it wouldn’t be right to not mention her flawless appearance, and she really does look stunning with her ultra-smoky eyes. If you want to get Cheryl’s look here are all the products she used – as well as a stunning shade of red nail varnish, which I am still tracking down!!!

For her fab eyes: Apply the eyeshadow Color Infallible 12 Endless Chocolate finger on the whole eyelid; then add eyeshadow Color Infallible Electric Cosmic Black Gold on the whole eyelid and lower lash line; and finish off the eyes with False Lashes mascara Telescopic Magnetic Black on the upper and lower eyelashes, focusing on the ends.
